All script applications including forums or web shops keep their information inside a database - a group of cells and tables containing all the site data including items, prices, comments, and so forth. When you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the required info, then shows it. The intermediary software which connects the script and the database is called a database management system and among the most popular ones is MySQL. The latter is frequently used because it works on several platforms (Windows, Linux, UNIX) and with numerous scripting languages (Java, Perl, Python, PHP), not mentioning its excellent performance even with huge databases. Lots of well-known platforms including Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to keep their content.
