Installing Forums

I am so lost, I think I followed the directions on the installing tutorial but my forum doesn't show. Can someone tell me how to put the forum on my site?

First of all, what kind of forum you trying to make? A PHPBB forum or a Discuz! forum?
thpn
phpbb forum, and i have gotten all the files saved.
mathiaus
you're missing a bunch of files and folders assuming you mean the forums directory. Make sure to upload all the files and folders and try again Wink

Hi mathiaus,
I have the same problem.
To what folder do I have to upload the phpBB2 folder and how can I get to the install/install.php file using my browser ? ?

Kind greetings
Helios
You download the zipped pack which contains all of the files.
After that, you unzip it and upload all of the files to ANY folder under your 'public_html' folder(you should create a new folder).
Then you need run the installation script and follow the directions.
Don't forget to CHMOD the files/folders they say you have to CHMOD.

That's it.

I actually miss the days when installing a discussion board was hard..
Nowadays almost every kid can learn how to do it.

lol. Helios Wink.

Alternatively, if you cannot be bothered to upload so many files, download the .tar.gz version of phpBB. Upload the .tar.gz file, then extract the tar.gz in Directadmin Wink

it's a lot better than phpBB forums.
but it's a lot harder...

do you have cpanel or some other pannel wel just make sure you have upload complete file some time ftp dosen.t work well so when ever you upload any file after it complete you do it again give the permission to ftp to write again if new so it wont write again but it upload any missing files

Discuz! is in chinese and is paid software.

Using nullified software on Frihost is a bannable offence.

Also, please stop doing offtopic.
