All script applications such as forums or virtual stores save their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the site info including items, prices, comments, etc. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required data, then shows it. The mid-level software which 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 widely used because it runs on several platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent effectiveness even with big databases. Many popular platforms like WordPress or Joomla™ work with MySQL databases to store their content.
