All script apps like forums or web stores store their information in a database - a set of cells and tables that contains all of the site info including items, prices, comments, and many others. Whenever you open a specific page, the script connects to the database and retrieves the necessary data, then shows it. The intermediary software which 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 commonly used simply because it functions on different platforms (Linux, UNIX, Windows) and with a range of scripting languages (PHP, Java, Python, Perl), not mentioning its amazing functionality even with huge databases. Lots of famous platforms like Joomla or WordPress work with MySQL databases to store their content.
