All script apps like forums or virtual shops keep their data within a database - a group of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site data such as items, prices, comments, and many others. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the specified information, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it functions on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a range of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its amazing effectiveness even with massive databases. Many widely used platforms including WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to save their content.
