All script apps such as forums or e-shops keep their information inside a database - a group of cells and tables containing all of the site data such as items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it runs on different platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with large databases. A lot of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
