Very easy. First you need a few things. First, you'll need a webserver. Don't use that crap of one Microsoft hands out. Use Apache, even better with the OS running Linux!! Second, you'll need a plug-in called PHP, pretty simple to install. Next, you'll need the forum software, such as Dyso's and my companies, phpBB2 (www.phpbb.com.) Finally, you'll need someplace to hold the data. My suggestion would be to use mySQL. Very easy to set up, maintain, and fast. Best of all, on all of these, is that it is all free and widely documented. Open Source is a beautiful thing. icon_smile.gif
Any other questions? Feel free to PM me, and I can probably walk you through it.

Hey Angelfire DOES support phpbb! I just signed up for a new web acount. I'm on this part of the intsructions:

Installation of phpBB 2 will vary according to your server and database. If you have shell access to your account (via telnet or ssh for example) you may want to upload the entire phpBB 2 archive (in binary mode!) to a directory on your host and unarchive it there.

My current phpbb is exstracted into a folder but i still have the .zip file that it was in. Does this mean upload the .zip file?

aand then theres this part

3.iii. Installing on MySQL 3 and 4, PostgreSQL 7.x, MS SQL 7/2000 (inc. via ODBC)

Before proceeding with installation you should ensure you have a database available. Most good hosting accounts now come with at least one database as part of the basic package although it may need to be setup before first use. Ask your provider for details if you are unsure whether you do or not. If you are running your own server and are unsure how to create a database you should refer to your SQL servers documentation or website, e.g. http://www.mysql.com/doc/, http://www.postgresql.org/users-lounge/, etc.

If your database server is MySQL PLEASE ensure you select the appropriate version from the dropdown box. Do NOT select MySQL 4.x if you have MySQL 3.x (the most common type) installed, if in doubt select MySQL 3.x.



um i HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO! Help?

Could always try to google one. Goto www.google.com and search for free webhost frontpage mysql php. That's how I found the other I sent to you. There were a bunch of hosts listed, I just picked one.
