All script apps including forums or online stores store their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of 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 required information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it works on different platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing efficiency even with large databases. Numerous famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
