All script apps such as forums or web stores keep their data within a database - a group of cells and tables that contains all of the site info including items, prices, comments, etc. Each time you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified info, then displays it. The mid-level software which connects the script and the database is known as a database management system and amongst the most widely used ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it functions on various platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its great efficiency even with large databases. Many widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to save their content.
