All script applications including forums or virtual shops store their data within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains the website data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it works on a variety of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with huge databases. Numerous well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
