All script applications like forums or e-stores store their data within a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all of the site info including items, prices, comments, and so forth. Anytime you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and amongst the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used simply because it works on a variety of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, PHP, Perl, Java), not mentioning its wonderful functionality even with big databases. Numerous well-known platforms like WordPress or Joomla employ MySQL databases to store their content.
