All script applications including forums or virtual shops keep their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the website info such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it runs on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with huge databases. A lot of popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
