All script applications including forums or e-shops save their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the site data like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it runs on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with huge databases. A lot of famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
