All script applications like forums or e-shops save their info within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the site info including items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it functions on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its great performance even with large databases. Numerous widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.
