All script applications like forums or virtual shops save their data within a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the website data like items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it can run on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with huge databases. Numerous well-known platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
