All script apps like forums or online stores store their information within a database - a group of cells and tables containing the Internet site data such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it functions on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with large databases. Numerous popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.
