All script apps such as forums or e-shops save their info inside a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the website information such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The mid-level software that 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 widely used simply because it runs on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with big databases. A lot of famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to store their content.
