All script apps such as forums or online stores keep their data in a database - a group of cells and tables that contains the Internet site info including items, prices, comments, etc. Anytime you open a certain page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the needed data, then displays it. The mid-level software that connects the script and the database is called a database management system and one of the most famous ones is MySQL. The latter is commonly used as it can run on a variety of platforms (UNIX, Linux, Windows) and with a number of scripting languages (Python, Perl, PHP, Java), not mentioning its wonderful efficiency even with large databases. Numerous widely used platforms like WordPress or Joomla work with MySQL databases to store their content.
