Hi all,

I am really sorry to post this question in meaning less, but I found it very active forum and didn't find PHP forum, so...

I want to make a forum site, I have downloaded forum software from this site http://www.phpbb.com, but I am not at all clear, what to do now???

If any body has done it previously then it would be great help for me if he/she can help...

Please help...

Thanks a lot for your time.

Hey Rathi Ji,

If you don�t have a compulsion to use forum mentioned by you, use jforum.

I have used it. It has lots of features, easy to setup and easy to customize.


My blood is tested +ve for Java.

Ofcourse I can use any forum software.

Thanks for the link. I will download it and will try to deploy it. Can I ask questions regarding JForum on your personal ID???
