All script applications including forums or e-shops keep their data within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the website info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it works on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with massive databases. A lot of famous platforms such as Joomla™ or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
