All script applications like forums or virtual stores keep their info within a database - a group of cells and tables containing all of the site info like items, prices, comments, and many others. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it works on a variety of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with large databases. Many popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to store their content.
