All script apps like forums or e-shops keep their data in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the site data including items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it runs on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its great efficiency even with huge databases. Many popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to save their content.
