All script apps like forums or e-shops store their info in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the website data such as items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it works on several platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with massive databases. Many famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
