All script apps including forums or web stores keep their information inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all of the website info such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it operates on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with big databases. Many famous platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
