All script apps including forums or virtual shops keep their info in a database - a set of cells and tables containing all the site info including items, prices, comments, and so on. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used simply because it works on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its great effectiveness even with big databases. Many widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla™ use MySQL databases to save their content.
