Thread: Forum php script

  1. #1
    I want to download a full forum script in php and maybe another in asp and host it in a free web host and put the forum work at 100% on that host, so I can made some changes after that. I want to execute it on my pc too. I already have the latest php,apache and mysql in my machine. just need the steps to config the mysql with the form databases etc. Need someone who write some steps I have to follow. Thanks.

    What forum script do you want to use?
    phpbb is free and very good for a free forum software: http://www.phpbb.com/downloads/

    vbulletin isn't free. It's what this forum uses.

    * shell commands are red
    * mysql commands are green
    * mysql infos are orange


    This is how you create a DB with MySQL:
    $ mysqladmin -u root -p create db1
    Comment: with mysqladmin, you create with user "root" a table with the name "db1". If you just installed your mysql, root already exists and has no password.

    Then, you have to administrate your newly created table with following commands:
    $ mysql -u root -p mysql (Comment: you get on your mysql configuration)
    mysql> GRANT CREATE,SELECT,INSERT,UPDATE,DELETE
    -> ON db1.*
    -> TO torrentmaster@localhost
    -> IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
    Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.02 sec)
    (Comment: this sets the good ownerships for you database)
    More informations about "GRANT" here:
    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/grant.html
    With this command, we have allocated the rights for user "torrentmaster" the rights to CREATE, SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE everything on table db1 with the password "password" from localhost.

    mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
    Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

    mysql> quit

    Don't hesitate to ask if you have questions ;-)

    the fact your trying to get a forum up and running on a free host instantly rings alarm bells. chances are you wont be able to do it.

    who is the free host ?

    thanks

    Im a noob on this dont laught if I make stupid questions, hehe. I think the forum have to already have defined the the structure of the db(tables, fields, etc) and you just have to create a database(just the database name, user and pass) on mysql(of the webhost or of the one installed on your pc) and then make some changes on the code of the forum so it can work with that database created. its this right?
