All script applications such as forums or virtual shops keep their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all of the website data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it works on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with big databases. Many well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.
