All script apps such as forums or virtual shops store their info within a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the website data such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it runs on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its great functionality even with large databases. Numerous popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
