(Newbie) I need directions on how to install phpBB

Postby johnation33 » 16. November 2005 05:45

Hi!

I need help installing phpBB on xampp. here is the most I have gone so far:
I extracted all the files into
C:\ProgramFiles\xampp\htdocs\

Where do I go from there?
(Please note, this is from a base installation, so if I need to set up a database or something like that, please let me know)

Step-by-step instructions on how to complete the installation is appreciated.

I've been going through the installation, and the phpBB install.php only gives me choices of mysql3.x and mysql 4.x... xampp comes with mysql5.x... how do I configure it?
