How to host a phpbb forum?

Sun Jul 27, 2014 1:57 pm

Hi there,

I am thinking of setting up a phpbb forum, but wanted to have a play with phpbb first, to configure the forum, etc, before copying it to a paid-for web hosting site.

I have seen various examples, where people have managed to get phpbb working on a RPi, but can not find any step-by-step guides explaining how install the software (plus web server etc) onto a clean RPi SD image.

Can anyone point me in the right direction please.

Thanks in advance.

Everything you need to know is at the phpbb site. In a case like this, the RPI is just another Linux computer so follow the instructions.
