All script applications like forums or e-stores keep their info inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the site information 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 shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it works on various platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with large databases. Many well-known platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
