All script applications including forums or virtual stores keep their info inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the website data like items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it can run on several platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with big databases. Lots of famous platforms including Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
