PHP





Clergy
Ok... here's the quick gist...

I am PHP/SQL ignorant. I am trying to teach myself, but I can not find a tutorial that actually tells how to set up anything relating to SQL. It says, "Set up blah blah blah" but doesn't tell you how.

Here is all I want it for:

I just want to be able to add forums to my site using PHPBB. I... am... clueless.

Does anyone have any recommendations on a good source of information for this sort of thing?

Do you want a already made forum or are you trying to create one? I'm confused on the matter

Installing a forum is a piece of cake- It has been designed for beginers.

Upload all your files and usually run install.php. All the instructions should be doccumented

Well, I am using the PhPBB... but I am starting one from scratch as far as the actual format goes. However.. to answer your question... right now, I will take anything administerable.

I tried that, but the install.php just came back as a page of code. I didn't get the form page.

I will come back as a piece of code IF you do not havev PHP installed or...You are not running it through a webserver e.g Apache!

Hope this helps

if all else fails you can let some one else host the forum for you. and you have total control over it just like it was running on your site you just add a link to it on your site. you can try this one here http://www.getaforum.com/

or even better....set it up on your frihost webhosting (assuming you have one) account, just go to cpanel and find the phpbb install script there, it will do it all for you! Smile
