All script apps like forums or web stores save their data in a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the site info like items, prices, comments, and so on. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then displays it. The intermediary software that 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 runs on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with large databases. A lot of popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
