All script apps such as forums or online shops store their information inside a database - a collection of cells and tables containing all the site information such as items, prices, comments, etc. When you open a particular page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required information, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used simply because it works on a number of platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic performance even with big databases. Numerous widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
