All script apps such as forums or e-stores save their information in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the site info including items, prices, comments, and many others. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it runs on a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with huge databases. A lot of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.
