All script applications including forums or web shops save their information within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, 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 frequently used simply because it operates on a number of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with massive databases. Many famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.
