How to get a forum

Question

Caspar    0

Hey guys,

I?d like to set up a forum for my guildies in World of Warcraft.

My problem is that I have NO idea how to do this.

What I?m looking for is a complete package, that?s easy to set up and maintain, without knowledge in mySQL etc.

Many regards,

Cascar

I don't know if there is one that requires no knowledge of PHP or MySQL. You could search google or sourceforge.net for more information though.

Well youll need some very basic knowledge -- setting up a forum is easy, just use those free hosting services or setup your own -- SMF, PHPBB etc, or IPB, the best (Y) The $185 perpetual licence may turn you away though. I bought it (Well, lots of people on my site contributed $$$) and its one of the best purchases ever :yes:

Free hosting - http://www.google.com/search?q=xmgfree&btnG=Google+Search

Forum "software" - http://www.google.pt/search?q=phpBB2&btnG=Google+Search

just some basic knowledge needed, but if you read the "readme" file you should be ok :)
