    Phpbb?

    I have always wanted to set up a phpbb forum, however for the life of me, I can't figure out how on earth to set it up with a data base... I can't even figure out how to set up any of the databases that phpbb can run on. I feel like a pretty intelligent person, but holy crap! I just don't understand this. Does anyone have any kind of help or walkthrough of how to set one up please?

    Thanks!

    phpBB does most of the work for you. Just create the database with name, user, and password. phpBB will then prompt you for that information and create all tables for you. You should have a basic understanding of PHP, MySQL and phpMyAdmin.

    Check out www.phorum.org instead of phpBB.

    You should be able to create database from your hosting control panel. Than you can just run install script. By the way, some hostings provide the ability to install the script right from the control panel.
