All script applications including forums or online shops keep their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables containing the website info like items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it can run on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with big databases. A lot of popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.
