basic phpBB3 question

Post by Yciaziva » Tue Mar 05, 2019 5:11 am

Going to try installing phpBB3 on my shared hosting (personal account) and just wanted to check if I need to do anything before doing so.

Currently have nothing but a few basic bits of html and images on there. Do I need to do anything in the way of activating the MySQL or PHP of the hosting or should it just install no problems?

Have created a forum subdomain so will be waiting for that to be created before installing. From a quick glance of the phpBB documentation I just upload into desired folder (forum, which I have set as route of the forum subdomain) and when I browse to that page for the first time the installer should run.

Yup. Most, if not all hosting providers have PHP and MySQL already enabled so installation should be pretty straight forward.
