All script apps including forums or online shops save their info within a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the website data such as items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it runs on a number of platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with huge databases. Lots of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to save their content.
