Ummmm :S I think to help you solve your error you will need to post more information. like where are you trying to host this phpapp? Is it on a hosting service that you paid for? or on a server you have setup yourself? What OS is the server running? Like Windows or mac or linux? if it is linux what distribution are you using?

if you cant answer these above questions... give up... and start doing ALOT of reading...

or find yourself a hosting company that has an installer that will allow you to install it form the control panel.

Before i got myself my own server that i manage myself, my hosting company had a little installer in the control panel, that allowed me to just click and wait for it to install phpbb for me... :)
