All script applications such as forums or virtual stores store their data in a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the Internet site info like items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows it. The mid-level software that 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 frequently used because it works on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its great efficiency even with big databases. A lot of widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ employ MySQL databases to store their content.
