All script applications including forums or virtual shops store their data inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the site data like items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it can run on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its excellent performance even with large databases. Lots of popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
