All script apps such as forums or web stores save their data inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the site information such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it runs on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with big databases. Many famous platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.
