I have www.handmadeboat.com domain hosted by 1&1.
I'd like to build a forum that is linked to that site, with an address such as forum.handmadeboat.com
I need someone to explain how to do this "pointing."
I'm so new, that I only just found out that the name has to be forum.handmadeboat.com, and not www.handmadeboat.com/forum
But I can learn. Back to questions...
I would like to use the One Click installs for a PHPBB forum, but I have read here that people are having trouble with members posting to the forum but the posts never showing up.
To avoid the first problem, someone suggested building my PHPBB forum from a download from PHPBB.com instead of using the one-click dreamhost product.
I have also seen some security/naming issues discussed with something called CHMOD and a 777 issue.
I don't have suggestions from anyone about how to avoid the second problem.
Is there going to be an issue with people uploading their photos to the site?
What issues will I face with this 777 + dreamhost problem?
