All script apps such as forums or online stores store their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the website information such as items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it runs on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with large databases. Many well-known platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
