All script apps including forums or web stores store their data in a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the website information including items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it operates on several platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with large databases. Many popular platforms such as Joomla or WordPress use MySQL databases to store their content.
