All script applications such as forums or online stores keep their info inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the Internet site info such as items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it can run on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with big databases. Many famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.
