All script applications like forums or online shops keep their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the website data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it runs on various platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its excellent performance even with big databases. Numerous widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
