ok, i m trying to set up a forum from my pc, not a web host with foxserv and phBB2 forum board. i would ask on the phBB2 forum but most of it is german and only a small % english so i though if anyone on here could help me.
and i have been up for 36 hours+ so if this doesnt make much sense sorry, i will come back and edit it tommorrow.
ok as far as i can tell (total Noob at this BTW) foxserv comes with perl, mysql, apache and python and i have set this up to run as an windows service so i can run my website from my pc not a webhost. i also wanted a forum so downloaded phBB2 got it installed correctly and messed about with it for awhile to see how i set up foums, i could view them and so could my friend from another pc, so far so good.
but i want to know how i can set up the auto email bit so when someone registers for a new account it will send them the registration info, and the confirm link.
if this is already set up as i havnt tested it yet (i know i shouldnt be posting here until i do but i have just thought about testing it now DOH!!, so i will post this anyway and see what replies i get for when i wake up.
again sorry if this is such a noob question, but lack of sleep make ppl pretty dumb lol
