All script apps like forums or web shops save their information within a database - a group of cells and tables containing the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it operates on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with big databases. A lot of widely used platforms including Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
