All script applications such as forums or web shops store their data inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing the Internet site info including items, prices, comments, and so on. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it runs on several platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with big databases. Lots of widely used platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
