All script apps including forums or virtual shops keep their info within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the Internet site information including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with large databases. Numerous well-known platforms like Joomla™ or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.
