In this chapter, I’ve introduced you to the basic concepts and lingo involved in forum administration. I’ve showed you the important qualities in any good piece of forum software, and shown you how phpBB fits that mold. In the next chapter, I’ll walk you through the process of installing your phpBB and making it operational. I’ll take you through every nuance of the installation process, and give you a guided tour of the phpBB administration panel. You’ll learn how to make basic configuration adjustments, create forums, and assign them moderators, all in an effort to get a basic community underway. Finally, I’ll also preview the phpBB 3.0 installer and administration tools.
