    It's possible there is one already and i've just totally missed it, but I reckon a good follow up to this article would be one on customising phpBB by using hacks, altering sign-up forms and fiddling with the template system to make it a more individual setup.

    I've figured out most of this stuff myself while using phpBB but a well-written guide would prove handy for a lot of people. And no i'm not volunteering myself there, been years since i've written an article for SP

    If you do a search on the forums this has been discussed many many times over. I think there might also be a hack over at phpBBHacks for this
    I have searched all over phpBBHacks as well as Sitepoint for this hack but I am having NO luck. Can someone point me in the right direction if I want the user to be logged in to take part in the forum as well as other pages outside of the forum.

    Thanks

    Busch,

    Are you referring to using your phpBB-based forum within a frame and disallowing it to gain control over the entire web-page?

    You need to edit the template-file "login_body.tpl" in the template-directory "phpBB2/templates/subSilver/". Either change the specified target in the form-tag to your frame-name or simply remove the target altogether.

    Good luck!

    I have a problem with my language pack in PHPBB.The link is. When the hebrew language pack is installed it generates
    text in some other logical coded form (ie. special characters). I am using dreamweaver and had changed language properties to unicode, visual hebrew, windows hebrew but couldnt resolve the issue.

    If anyone can help plz email me at poonam_v15@yahoo.co.in

    Thanks

    Installation
    With all the information at hand, installation is as simple as pointing your browser towards the install.php file. If you uploaded the directory phpBB2 and its contents to the root directory of your server, the path you need is http://www.<your domain>/phpBB2/install/install.php.

    Fill in the text boxes and press the Start Install button.

    ******
    Where are the text boxes and start install button?

    i only see this:

    <?php
    /***************************************************************************
    * install.php
    * -------------------
    * begin : Tuesday, Sept 11, 2001
    * copyright : (C) 2001 The phpBB Group
    * email : support@phpbb.com

    *
    ***************************************************************************/

    et cetra...

    To the Anonymous user who posted Jan 27th, 2005 @ 4:56 AM MST:

    You either don't have php installed properly on your system, or you use different extensions.

    If your problem is the latter, get one of these experts here to help you :).

    Otherwise, you can go to

    http://au2.php.net/manual/en/install.php

    and learn how to install php :).


    As Peter says above, after installing just use the script:

    <?php
    phpinfo();
    ?>

    to check if you installed it properly :).

    Hope this helped :).

    Article is good but you not said any thing about problems after installation, the way from just installing forum and using it is sometimes very long.

    Problems on windows are in most cases related to cookies and sessions, because of IIS, and with Apache on win it is litle less problems but they are exist annyway.
    For no problem install and use unix/linux is recomended, but that require some kowing of that os ...
    I am using Windows server 2003 and tryed IIS and Apache and ... and I did not resolvet proper functioning of forum because many reasons that I can not write all here and because other many reasons I can not replace my win for linux and I write all this in hope that there is someone who can help me.

    My mail is miki@wireless-media.net so if someone is willing to help ...

    This tutorial was honestly helpful enough, being that I understand my browser -can- handle php. But, apparently my server does not support FTP or even *.php files. But I am currently looking for a new one, and I think I may have it.

    I really liked the information given here. It got a little too discreet every once in a while, but I managed to understand it well enough.

    Thanks for writing this. :) It really helps. Especially since it's based right off the download from phpBB.com.

    I agree with the missdiva's post (two posts above this one). I may have never known about this if I had not stumbled upon this article here. And he is right. It takes about 5 minutes to set the whole thing up. Awesome.
