All script apps like forums or virtual shops keep their info inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the website info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on various platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its excellent performance even with big databases. Many widely used platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to save their content.
