question about web boards

Postby scmeis1 » 01. February 2005 13:10

As a former IIS guy, learning about apache and now XAMPP. I am completely impressed. I was wondering how to make a webboard like this. I was going to use php-nuke but i see it done here and would like to know where to start. Thanks again for the help.

Hi Scott,

this board (phpBB) is open source software and you can find it here.

It requires Apache, php and mySQL. All of this you have in XAMPP.

To start:
1. Download the phpBB package.
2. decompress it
3. copy it into htdocs (linke.../htdocs/forum/)
4. create database with phpmyAdmin
5. start install-script of phpBB

Read the readme of the phpBB package or find all documantation on their website.

If you have more questions, post them here.

Have fun :lol:
