All script apps such as forums or online shops store their info inside a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the website data such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it runs on several platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with massive databases. A lot of widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
