    Well I took a look at it, and I know a bit about hosting and whatnot. You have a server, right?

    It looks like you just start downloading. I guess it runs by donations and the 50% profits it receives from TextDrive when you select PunBB as your source. Good Luck!

    Do you have a server? The service is free. Go to "Downloads" page and continue according to the instructions and blue links. Good Luck.

    What you need to do is do some searching, reading and learning.
    There is probably a help forum for this if you search for it.
    Good Luck. [​IMG]

    This question is like someone asking:

    "Hi, can you guys tell me how to build a computer from a bunch of parts I bought at CompUSA."

    Your question really is just as complex and so is the answer. It is even more difficult if you've never hosted a site, setup a MySQL database, or FTP's files to a server.

    If you didn't understand every single word in that sentence above then you are in WAAAY over your head and you need to use a free forum hosting site, spend about 3 weeks reading about each of those items, or paying a professional to set it up for you.
