This is my pieced together how to on installing phpBB
phpBB is a high powered, fully scalable, and highly customizable forums package. phpBB has a user-friendly interface, simply and straight-forward administration panel, and helpfull FAQ. All this and being backended by the blazeingly fast MySQL database server makes phpBB the ideal community solution for all web sites.
If you are going to want to put phpBB under your primary/html directory do the following, otherwise go onto the next step.
This was from a post from Darrell May
PHP support is not enabled in the primary i-bay in 4.1.2 Could you check whether the following works:
mkdir -p /etc/e-smith/templates-Custom/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
cp 90e-smithAccess10primary /etc/e-smith/templates-custom/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Now edit 90e-smithAccess10primary to add a line after line 12:
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3
Options Indexes Includes
/sbin/e-smith/signal-event ip-change $(/sbin/e-smith/config get ExternalIP)
from http://www.phpBB.com/download/phpBB-1.4.0.tar.gz I put it in my /primary/html directory then
tar xvf phpBB-1.4.0.tar
this will put phpBB under primary/html/phpBB
Type mysqladmin create phpBB , this can be from any directory.
You will need the mysql password for the username "root"
pico /root/.my.cnf to find out what the root password is for mysql the mysql password is not the same as your root password.
/home/e-smith/files/primary/html/phpBB/chmod a+w config.php
fill in the first several screens, when it asks you to login
run chmod 644 config.php
then you will be able to login to the admin interface.
Im having a blast with this I hope you will too.
Written By Jason Hammond, with Info from e-smith forums, and the phpBB readme file. Basically I cant take credit for any of this.
