All script applications such as forums or e-stores store their info in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all the site info such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used as it works on various platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its wonderful effectiveness even with massive databases. A lot of popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
