All script apps including forums or e-stores save their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains the website info such as items, prices, comments, etc. Whenever you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed info, then displays it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it works on various platforms (Linux, Windows, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with large databases. A lot of popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to save their content.
