All script applications including forums or e-stores store their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the site information including items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The intermediary software that 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 can run on different platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with huge databases. A lot of widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.
