All script apps like forums or online stores store their information in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the site data like items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it functions on a variety of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with massive databases. A lot of well-known platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
