All script applications such as forums or web shops store their data in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the site information like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it can run on a number of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with massive databases. Lots of well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
