All script applications including forums or online stores store their info inside a database - a set of cells and tables which contains all the site info including items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it works on a number of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its fantastic performance even with massive databases. Many well-known platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.
