All script applications like forums or online shops keep their data in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the site information such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it functions on various platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with big databases. Numerous well-known platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.
