All script apps like forums or online shops keep their info inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the site data like items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it works on several platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with huge databases. A lot of widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
