All script applications like forums or virtual stores save their info inside a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all of the website information including items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then shows 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 simply because it operates on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its wonderful performance even with big databases. Numerous widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
