All script apps including forums or online shops store their data inside a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the Internet site information like items, prices, comments, and many others. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it works on several platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its great performance even with massive databases. Lots of famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
