All script apps including forums or virtual stores store their info in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the Internet site info including items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it runs on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with big databases. Lots of famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ use MySQL databases to keep their content.
