All script applications such as forums or web shops save their data within a database - a collection of cells and tables containing the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it runs on a variety of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with massive databases. Lots of famous platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
