All script applications including forums or e-shops save their data in a database - a set of cells and tables which contains the site data like items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary information, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and one of the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it works on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with large databases. A lot of popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to keep their content.
