All script apps such as forums or e-stores keep their data within a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the website data such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it functions on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its amazing performance even with massive databases. Many popular platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
