All script applications such as forums or online shops keep their info inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the site data including items, prices, comments, and so on. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it runs on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with massive databases. Many famous platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.

Generating a backup is equally simple and requires only a mouse click on the Backup button for a certain database.
