As an illustration, if you start an Internet based store, the size of the database that the e-commerce script uses shall increase when you add more items. Exactly the same is valid for a forum script - the more users which register and the more comments they post, the bigger the database. If your websites become more popular or you simply want to add more content, this may be a problem if your hosting account has limited database storage area. The specific effect of geting to the limit will be depends on the script - the site could work correctly, but you may not be able to add any new content; the site could be shown with errors; or, in the most severe scenario, the entire website could simply go offline.
