phpBB is a popular Internet forum software written in PHP. The name "phpBB" is an abbreviation of PHP Bulletin Board.
First of all, download the latest release of phpBB (3.0.7-PL1 at the time of writing) from the Official Site. When that is done you have to extract the archive and upload the files using FTP. If you want to have your forums in the root of the domain, upload all files to public_html. If you rather have it in a folder, subdomain or an addon domain, rename the folder of the extracted archive to something of your choice, like forum, and upload that folder to your public_html folder (make sure there isn't a folder in the folder, the php files etc should be visible when you go inside the "forum" folder). Point subdomains or addon domains to this folder. When all the files have been successfully uploaded, navigate to them in your browser. Follow the instruction that appear on screen, and your installation will run smoothly.
