All script apps like forums or web shops keep their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables containing all of the site data like items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it works on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with large databases. Many popular platforms like Joomla™ or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.
