All script apps like forums or virtual shops save their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the website data such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it can run on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with large databases. Many popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
