Setting Up a Free Forum This will teach you how to make your own free forum, with no ads in just a half hour! The forum software will be phpBB3. For an example of a phpBB3 forum visit http://rodead.com phpBB3 is open source, meaning that you can edit the forum code. Step 1: Sign up for an ad free x10hosting account (note: it dosen't have to be x10hosting but I strongly recommend x10hosting, the details are the bottom.) (http://x10hosting.com). Step 2: Once it's confirmed and all that download phpBB3, you can go to the next step while it's downloading. (http://phpbb.com). Step 3: Watch this tutorial to install it. If you do not understand anything just please contact me. Step 4: Your done and you have your free forum set up. (Wow, wasn't that easy?) _________________ Getting a .co.nr Domain For Your Forum: You can get a forum domain like www.myforum.co.nr free of charge. The catch is that you have to put this code on your website: PHP: <a href="http://www.freedomain.co.nr/" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.freedomain.co.nr/images/bars/anima.gif" width="88" height="31" border="0" alt="Free Domain Name - www.YOU.co.nr!"></a> _________________ INFO ABOUT X10HOSTING: -400mb Disk Space -You can have up to 3 mySQL databases. -Supports PHP, Perl and Ruby -Fantastico De Luxe -No Ads at all (unless you sign up for the ad enhanced account.) _________________ Getting a Toplevel Domain For Your Forum (costs money) If you want a .com, .org, .net, .biz, or .info I recommend http://www.domainredirect.com/, it costs $10's a year (€6.4239 or ?5.0624) _________________ I will shortly do a tutorial on the phpBB admin panel.
