All script apps including forums or web shops save their data in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the website info like items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with massive databases. Many widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
