All script apps including forums or e-stores keep their info in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the site info like items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it functions on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with big databases. A lot of widely used platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
