Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it functions on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with massive databases. Numerous widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
