All script apps including forums or web shops store their info in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the website data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it operates on different platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with large databases. A lot of popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.
