All script applications including forums or e-stores store their data in a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains the website information like items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it runs on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with large databases. Lots of widely used platforms including Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to keep their content.
