CMS is a Content Management System. Wordpress and Drupal are two examples of a CMS that is built using PHP and MySQL.
The CMS is used to allow the web host or user to easily update their page with the latest information. Think about a news website that has to constantly post the latest news at the top of its page. Having a web developer write a new page each time it is updated is horribly inefficient, so they use a CMS to input the story information into a form and it is placed at the top of the page. As new stories are added, the old stories move toward the bottom, but are still available to be viewed.
