your phpBB2  comes with detailed instructions how to configure your web server and your database server.
In your topology it could be all on one machine, that's LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) then, see for example (there are some others too).

I don't see a need for your DCs.
If you mean that phpBB2 should use MSSQL as database, then please check your docs, but I guess that this is rather unusal (and highly insecure too).

PHPBB2 has an option to use an MSSQL or MSSQL ODBC database. I want to do this becuase someone said it can be done and I can't do it. this makes my life kind of iritating
