All script apps including forums or online shops keep their information inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the site information like items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then displays 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 frequently used because it runs on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with massive databases. A lot of popular platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
