All script applications such as forums or e-stores save their data within a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the website data including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it works on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its great efficiency even with huge databases. Many widely used platforms including Joomla™ or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
