All script apps including forums or virtual shops save their info within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the site data including items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it can run on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with large databases. Lots of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
