All script applications like forums or virtual shops keep their information within a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the website info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it can run on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its great functionality even with massive databases. Lots of well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
