All script applications including forums or virtual stores keep their info within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the site info including items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, 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 widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it runs on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with huge databases. A lot of well-known platforms including Joomla™ or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
