All script apps like forums or online stores save their information in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all of the site info like items, prices, comments, and many others. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it functions on various platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with large databases. A lot of popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
