I will tell you in basic steps how to install your PHPbb 3.0.0 Forum in basic steps.


1. Go to http://www.phpbb.com/ and download the latest stable release.
2. Unzip your file onto your desktop
3. rename the main folder to "forum"
4. Using and FTP upload the files.
3. Next you need to run the install file. You can do this by pointing your web browser to the install file. It can be found at http://www.yoursite.com/forum/install/install.php
4. You will be asked to fill out a few questions.
Database Server Hostname : mysql3.freehostia.com
Your Database Name: This is the name of the MySQL database you wish to store the phpBB information in.

Admin Email Address:
This is usually your e-mail address

Domain Name: Yoursite.com - it should pre-fill correctly

Server Port: This is usually 80 - it should pre-fill correctly

Script path: This changes based upon if you put your forum in a subfolder or not - it should pre-fill correctly

The next three fields: Administrator Username, Administrator Password, and Administrator Password [ Confirm ] are used to setup the first account on the forum, the one you will login to to administer the forum, make posts, etc. These can be anything you want, but be sure you remember the values.

5. BEFORE you Click the button at the bottom to continue, go into your control panel and go the the install folder http://yoursite.com/forum/install/

Create a file called php.ini and place this in it
Code:
register_globals = Off
mbstring.http_input = pass
mbstring.http_output = pass

Save the file and go back to the install page and click on Continue.
Everything should be working fine, and should have another button at the bottom of the page to continue.

This How To is incomplete

It won't be possible to install PHPBB 3 without use of custom created php.ini file. Few PHP settings must be updated. So just create one php.ini file into PHPBB 3 "install" directory. Type following command lines:

register_globals = Off
mbstring.http_input = pass
mbstring.http_output = pass

In addition I have to say that it will be no problem to install PHPBB 3 while account is set to use PHP 4. PHPBB 3 requires to use PHP 4.3 at least and version on our servers is 4.4.

Which install file? There's install_install.php, install_convert.php, and install_main.php. Which is the right one? When I click on all of them they each display a bunch of code.

You will have to create the specified "php.ini" file and to place it in the "install" folder of your script, but not your install file. After that you will be able to install your script.

Please try again to create the php.ini file via file manger in your phpbb forum with this content in it:

register_globals = Off
mbstring.http_input = pass
mbstring.http_output = pass

If you still experience the same problem please open the ticket via Control Panel Help Center menu and we will be able to assist you further.
