All script applications including forums or virtual stores save their data in a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the website information such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it runs on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with big databases. Many famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla™ use MySQL databases to keep their content.
