All script applications including forums or web stores save their data inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the Internet site data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, 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 widely used simply because it can run on a number of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with large databases. Numerous widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.
