All script apps such as forums or e-shops store their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the Internet site data like items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it functions on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with massive databases. Many widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.
