All script apps like forums or web shops store their data in a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all the site data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it works on different platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with big databases. A lot of popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to store their content.
