All script apps such as forums or e-shops store their data in a database - a group of cells and tables containing all the site information including items, prices, comments, and many others. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The intermediary software which 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 commonly used as it functions on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with big databases. Numerous popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
