All script apps like forums or virtual stores keep their info in a database - a group of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, etc. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then shows 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 widely used because it can run on several platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its great performance even with big databases. Numerous popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
