All script applications like forums or online shops store their data in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the site info including items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then shows 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 widely used simply because it operates on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with big databases. Numerous famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
