All script applications including forums or virtual stores save their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the site information including items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it runs on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with huge databases. A lot of well-known platforms including Joomla™ or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
