All script applications such as forums or online shops save their information in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the site info such as items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it operates on several platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its great efficiency even with big databases. A lot of famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.
