All script apps including forums or online stores keep their information within a database - a set of cells and tables that contains the site info such as items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The mid-level software which 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 works on several platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great functionality even with large databases. Lots of widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to save their content.
