NEW forum HELP

I want to host my own forum on my computer. The forum is intended to be VERY small with 10 people MAX. Any help how to host with vbulletin. PLEASEW step by step for a dummy

on your computer or on frihost's server?
If its on your own computer, you'll need to install a http server (like apache) and php and mysql. (Not an easy thing for a newbie)
If its on frihost's server, you'll have to ask special permission to use a vbulletin forum and prove you have a license for it. (vbulletin is non-free, right?)

  1. Buy vBulletin (http://www.vbulletin.com/order/), and download it
  2. Download and install appache on your machine (search google for help)
  3. Download and install php5 on your machine (search google for help)
  4. Download and install mySQL on your machine (search google for help)
  5. Set up ports and stuff to make your computer work as server (search google for help)
  6. Drop Vb in the right folder and install it (search google for help)


Thats that - its probably very difficult, and you'll have to have you computer turned on for the forum to be accessible.



What i suggest you do:


  1. Wait till you have a frihost account
  2. Read (and follow) the "installing phpbb" topic in the tutorials forum


Yea...that is definitely a lot easier.

Installing Apache, mysql, php can be done in one shot. Refer to url http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html. XAMPP is a apache-mysql-php-perl package installer. One installer for all!
