All script apps like forums or web stores keep their data in a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the website data like items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it operates on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its fantastic performance even with huge databases. A lot of popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.
