All script apps such as forums or web shops store their info in a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the site info like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it can run on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its amazing performance even with big databases. Numerous popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to save their content.
