All script apps such as forums or virtual shops store their info within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the site info such as items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it can run on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its excellent performance even with big databases. Many well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
