All script applications such as forums or online shops keep their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the website data like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The intermediary 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 widely used simply because it functions on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing performance even with large databases. Lots of widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
