Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it runs on a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with large databases. Lots of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to save their content.
