You are partially wrong:
Iwouldnt say your friend was lying...just misinformed. He probalby got hosted on a server that offered MySQL. Forums like Invision (this one) require a database to work, it is possible to run a foum using PERL and a file system but it eats up a lot of disk space and they are more of anovelty than a practical system. The MySQL is a database server, it merely manipulates, stores and retrieves data, I doesn't understand HTML or HTTP at all only PHP or its own query language, so you can't take an SQL server and make a web site with one, it is used with a webserver. Hope that helps.
- you don't need to use perl to write a forum using flat files. you can use php+flat files or perl+mysql. I wrote myself a php CMS using flatfile database.
- storing data in mysql or files makes no difference. mysql needs a hd too, or did you think the data stored in sql dbs just float around?
