All script applications including forums or e-shops store their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all the website data including items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it operates on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with huge databases. Many well-known platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
