All script applications like forums or e-stores save their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all the Internet site info including items, prices, comments, and many others. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it operates on several platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its great performance even with large databases. Lots of popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
