All script applications like forums or virtual shops save their data within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the site info such as items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, 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 widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it functions on various platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with big databases. Many popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
