All script apps including forums or online shops keep their information inside a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the site info including items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used because it can run on several platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with big databases. Many famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.
