All script apps like forums or e-shops store their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all of the site info including items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with large databases. Lots of widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
