    [Guide] How to make forums for your wow website

    This isn't a repost i just want to contribute

    To make forums for your website the easy way you will need to download PHPBB,

    First of all go into your database and create a new database named what ever you want for eg ill name it forums.

    Now download phpbb from phpBB Download

    now extract it to your desktop and rename it to 'forum'.

    Drag the new folder to your website folder should be c:\program files\wamp\www
    now go into your internet and type inthe url the following:

    http://127.0.0.1/forum

    it will ask for your db information etc
    make sure when it asks from the _phpbb tables you select the database you created.

    now when its finished go into the forum folder and rename/delete the 'install' folder.

    visit your website and congratulations you have forums!

    if you want pictures just ask

    These ads disappear when you log in.

    Yea, that's correct. All you need to do is set it up and you have your own forums

    If a person knows how to make an SQL database, then they will surely know how to install phpBB.
    Double check you're trading with me in case of impostors
