All script applications such as forums or e-shops keep their info in a database - a group of cells and tables which contains all the website data including items, prices, comments, and so on. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows 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 commonly used simply because it can run on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with massive databases. A lot of widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla™ employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
