All script applications like forums or e-stores store their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the website data like items, prices, comments, etc. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it operates on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with big databases. A lot of widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
