All script applications such as forums or web shops store their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the site info like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The mid-level 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 simply because it runs on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its great efficiency even with huge databases. Many popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.
