All script apps such as forums or virtual shops store their info in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the site data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The intermediary 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 operates on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with big databases. Many popular platforms such as WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
