All script applications like forums or web stores save their info within a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the site info including items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it functions on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with big databases. Lots of famous platforms such as WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.
