All script apps like forums or virtual shops save their info inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the website info like items, prices, comments, and so forth. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it functions on a variety of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with large databases. Lots of well-known platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
