All script applications like forums or web stores store their info in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the website info like items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it can run on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Perl, Python, Java), not mentioning its great functionality even with big databases. Many famous platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
