The article is useful, but it lacks many critical details. For example, suggest where the phpBB files should be placed (/var/www/phpBB2), mention that the tarball will create this directory, use tar xvzf <filename> since I doubt many users are actually ftping all of the specific files.
On the plus side, I would not have gotten my forum working without the help of this article, and I really appreciate the time the author took to write it.

Yes, there are some things lacking in specifics, but it's easy enough to understand for people who don't know any php at all (myself for example). If I can get this up and running, that has to say something good about the article. And really, if you have any questions that are just bothering you like crazy, ask the author! Simple, isn't it?
Thanks to this article, my visitors will have somewhere to communicate with myself or with fellow members. Many thanks again.

Very helpfull. This guide helped me through the instasllation process on my own webserver. Works slightly different then meantioned above. Didnt know that i had to make an SQL database specially for this forum. As i didnt had any experience at all about SQL/Forums i tried and tried and thought in a logical way ... made a SQL database with the name of my forum and it works.
In my case only the SQL explanation was missing, for the rest GREAT HELP!

After Start installation, I am told that The PHP configuration on your server doesn't support the database type that you chose.
What should I do ?

You can also run <a href="http://www.devside.net/">phpBB/Apache/Windows</a>.
These days though, phpBB seems to have too many security issues. I would switch to SMF, but their licensing terms are too restrictive. Open-source, free, but you may not redistribute.

i dont get this part....
There will be no Configure Command available when PHP is run on a Windows platform, so we'll take a slightly different approach to confirm database support here. Again viewing the info.php file, choose Find from your browser's menu options and search for your database type.
For instance, if we searched for mssql to confirm support for MS SQL Server, we should see something similar to the text below:
In the same way, you can test for PostgreSQL using the search string pgsql, for MySQL using mysql, and for ODBC support using odbc.
Use the info.php file to determine which version of the database you have. You'll need to know this when we begin the installation, and, with database and PHP support confirmed, we can now begin that process.
