All script applications like forums or online shops save their data in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the site info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it operates on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with large databases. A lot of popular platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
