All script applications such as forums or online shops save their information inside a database - a set of cells and tables containing the site info including items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it can run on different platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic functionality even with large databases. Many popular platforms including Joomla or WordPress employ MySQL databases to store their content.
