All script applications including forums or online shops keep their info within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the website data such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it can run on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with big databases. Numerous widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.
