Hi - I’m a beginning beginner so need some simple step-by-step instruction for having a forum on my site.

I downloaded the software from wwwthreads, but now I don’t know what to do with it.

Feeling stupid but hoping someone will take pity on me – MRose


If you are just beginning, unless there is a specific reason you want to use wwwthreads, I strongly suggest you use the DreamHost “one-click” installer to install PhpBB.

This is by far the easiest way to set up a forum if you have little experience with such things (and the PhpBB software has very good functionality). DOing it this way you can have you forum up in a few minutes.


Sweet! Thank you!

And you shouldn’t feel bad about coming here for advice. The people here (particularly in the Beginner’s forum) are here because they’re looking to help out people who are just getting started.
