All script applications such as forums or e-stores keep their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the site data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it works on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great performance even with big databases. Lots of popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
