All script applications such as forums or online shops keep their info inside a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the website data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it can run on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with numerous scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with massive databases. A lot of widely used platforms such as Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
