All script applications including forums or web shops save their data in a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the site info such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it works on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent functionality even with big databases. Many widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.
