Please help.... not homework

Post icon  Posted 28 June 2009 - 08:30 AM

My Dad and I recently bought a Qnap server (model 119) and I only have one year of 6th form vb.net experience. I am finding this task quite daunting.

Well, from the title I am assuming you aren't looking to make a forum, just get one set up. That makes things possible fairly quickly. All you need is a server that supports MySQL and PHP, then you download something like phpBB or IPB and then you upload it to the server, set up the MySQL database with a user and login information then install the forums. This can be done easier depending on what host you have as some allow for auto-installs of certain software (like phpBB) at which point you just type in what information it asks for and it takes care of everything else.

Hope that makes sense.
