All script apps including forums or virtual stores store their data within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the website data including items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it runs on several platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with big databases. A lot of well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
