All script apps including forums or virtual stores store their data within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the site data like items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The mid-level software that 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 as it can run on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with big databases. Lots of famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.
