All script applications like forums or virtual shops save their data in a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site info like items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, 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 widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it functions on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with big databases. Lots of famous platforms including Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.
