Ozzu uses phpBB which can be found here: http://www.phpbb.com/

You'll need PHP scripting and MySQL database support on the web server that is going to be hosting your online community. It may work with other databases besides MySQL. I'm not really sure, but that's the most common one by far in terms of the number of inexpensive hosts that support it.

You can also search google for things like "forum scripts" or "message board scripts" to find some other alternatives, but I think phpBB is the most popular and the installation is pretty straightforward.
