All script applications like forums or online shops save their data in a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the website data like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it runs on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great functionality even with massive databases. Numerous popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to save their content.
