All script applications such as forums or virtual stores store their info in a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the website data such as items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it functions on a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its fantastic performance even with massive databases. A lot of famous platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.
