All script apps such as forums or e-stores store their information inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the website information including items, prices, comments, and so on. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary 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 commonly used because it functions on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its great efficiency even with big databases. Lots of famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.
