All script apps such as forums or online shops store their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables containing the website data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it can run on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with large databases. Numerous famous platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to save their content.
