All script apps like forums or e-shops store their information inside a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all of the website info including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it runs on different platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with huge databases. Lots of famous platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
