All script apps including forums or e-shops save their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it functions on several platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing performance even with massive databases. Lots of widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.
