All script applications including forums or virtual stores store their data within a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the Internet site info including items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it operates on different platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with large databases. A lot of popular platforms such as Joomla™ or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
