All script applications including forums or e-shops save their data in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains the website data like items, prices, comments, etc. Every time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it runs on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its great efficiency even with large databases. A lot of famous platforms such as WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.
