All script applications such as forums or e-stores save their info within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the Internet site data like items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it runs on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with big databases. Lots of well-known platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
