All script applications including forums or virtual stores save their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site data including items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it can run on several platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with huge databases. Numerous widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
