All script apps like forums or e-stores keep their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the website info including items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it functions on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with massive databases. Numerous widely used platforms including Joomla™ or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
