All script applications such as forums or online shops keep their data in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the website data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it can run on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with big databases. Many popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.
