Well, I just got signed up a day or two ago, and already I have questions. (Don’t look at me mean >.<) Being as that I have almost no experience doing something like this, I find myself learning more and more and still finding my knowledge lacking. So here goes.
I’m currently using phpBB for a forum (which is basically all the site’s going to be, maybe a gallery too). Are there better forum techs out there that I could use? If so, what are they, and do they have something like a ‘Mediocre Webmaster’s Guide to Setup’?
Is it more secure to use WebFTP than to use an Explorer panel to access the shell?
Would it be possible to use the domain to host something like an OpenRPG server ( www.openrpg.com )? I only ask because my friends are all clamoring for me to start tabletop games, and this is really the only way I could do it with us being so far apart these days.
