All script apps such as forums or virtual stores save their information within a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the site info like items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it works on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its great efficiency even with massive databases. A lot of well-known platforms including Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to save their content.
