All script applications including forums or virtual stores save their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the site information including items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then shows it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it runs on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with large databases. Lots of famous platforms like WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to store their content.
