All script apps like forums or e-stores save their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the site information including items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it runs on several platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its great functionality even with large databases. Lots of well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.
