All script applications such as forums or online shops save their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all the website data including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it functions on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with large databases. Many widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.
