All script apps such as forums or e-stores keep their information within a database - a group of cells and tables which contains 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 needed information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it runs on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its great functionality even with huge databases. Many popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
