All script apps such as forums or web shops store their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all of the website info such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it works on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with huge databases. Many famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
