All script applications including forums or virtual shops store their data in a database - a set of cells and tables containing all of the Internet site information such as items, prices, comments, and so forth. Every time you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then displays it. The intermediary software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most well-known ones is MySQL. The latter is widely used as it operates on a number of platforms (Windows, UNIX, Linux) and with a variety of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Perl, Python), not mentioning its fantastic effectiveness even with massive databases. Many popular platforms including WordPress or Joomla use MySQL databases to keep their content.
