All script apps such as forums or web shops save their data in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the Internet site data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it works on different platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with huge databases. Many well-known platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
