All script apps like forums or virtual shops store their data within a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the site data including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it can run on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with big databases. Numerous popular platforms such as Joomla™ or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
