    I read the tutorial that was put in the forum on how to do it, and all went well until I tried to open the install.php

    when I open it, it doesnt view correctly
    and when i try to go to it by typing the URL directly in my address bar, it says 404

    here's a shot of what i get when I try to view the page

    Why dont you just use Fantasico.

    Did you put it in the public_html folder.

    Fantastico is basically a script that comes in cPanel and gives you a list of available programs that it can AUTOMATICALLY install on your hosting. All installions require a mysql DB and it saves a lot of time.

    As for your problem, check your CHMOD permissions.

    Have you used the auto installer or have you uploaded the phpbb setup?
