All script apps like forums or online stores keep their info in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all of the website info such as items, prices, comments, etc. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The mid-level software that 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 as it works on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with huge databases. Many famous platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
