All script apps like forums or e-stores save their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it can run on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with big databases. Many widely used platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.
