All script apps like forums or e-shops store their information in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all of the site data like items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then shows it. The mid-level software that 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 can run on different platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with big databases. Many popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
