All script applications such as forums or web shops keep their info in a database - a set of cells and tables containing the website information including items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it works on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing performance even with massive databases. A lot of well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
