All script apps including forums or online stores keep their info within a database - a collection of cells and tables which contains all of the Internet site information such as items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary info, then shows it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is referred to as a database management system and one of the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used because it runs on a variety of platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its excellent efficiency even with large databases. A lot of widely used platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
