All script apps such as forums or virtual stores keep their data inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the site information including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its excellent performance even with large databases. Lots of well-known platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
