thanks! I've used it before, but never installed it. Is it pretty straightforward to install?

I'm trying to install it, but it's giving me mysql errors (could not connect to database). Could you pm me or email me so I could get your help? it probably just needs the name of my Mysql database and the password, but I really don't know how I set that up. Any help would be appreciated.

The only issue I had with PHPBB was when I installed the Attachment Mod.

I installed it with out and issued, but I wanted to use the pre_modded files instead of having to edit all the scripts.

Basicly all your supposed to do is:

Upload and install PBPBB
Upload and install the Attachment files and install to a un-modded PHPBB
Upload the Pre-Modded files

And your done...............

Well as it turned out, when I uploaded the pre-modded files the admin and includes files didn't upload and overwrite the old ones. This caused me a bit of greif till I took a look at the files on the server and then uploaded the pre-modded files on there own.

I don't lnow if this was a fault with the installation of PHPBB and it's permissions or how I have my FTP client setup but it's working now.

I appreciate the offer of help, but I'd rather not have to register at another board to get the help. this is really getting to be more work than I wanted to set up a PHP or YABB board. I'd wanted to be DONE and RUNNING long before now, so unless 100Webspace adds the frontend to install those with a button click, I'm going to give up for now.
