Help creating webserver.

I am trying to use Xampp to create my own web server to test out phpbb3. I have succesfully installed xampp and got it up and running. I've created a new database in phpMyadmin, created a folder called phpbb in xampp httpdoc folder and put in the compressed phpbb folder which I downloaded from phpbb.com. Now when I go to the final page in my web browser (http://localhost/phpbb) I can see the folder, but when I click it, it just downloads it again for me. Can anyone help.

Oh dear, I've just read that back to myself and realized where I went wrong. I was thinking uncompressed means unzipped, it means the opposite. Sorry to bother you. :D
