All script applications including forums or online stores store their data inside a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the website data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it functions on various platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with numerous scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its great functionality even with big databases. Many popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to save their content.
