All script applications such as forums or e-stores store their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the Internet site info including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it works on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its excellent performance even with huge databases. A lot of popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.
