All script apps such as forums or web shops keep their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the site data like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it functions on a variety of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with big databases. Lots of popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
