All script applications such as forums or virtual stores store their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the site data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it can run on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with big databases. Many widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.
