All script apps such as forums or virtual stores save their information in a database - a collection of cells and tables that contains all the site data like items, prices, comments, and so on. Anytime you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then displays it. The mid-level software that 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 works on different platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a range of scripting languages (Java, PHP, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic efficiency even with massive databases. Numerous widely used platforms such as WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
