All script applications including forums or virtual stores save their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the site information like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it works on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with large databases. Many popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
