Okay, the only thing I know about phpbb code is the simple stuff I get from different MOD.  But my question is this, I had a phpbb forum on one hosting service and after a couple of years of building it (filling it with articles) I had to leave the particular hosting service alone; and along with my departure left all knowledge of what to do in case of...

So here I am now with the phpbb complete site on my system, but no means of viewing it unless I put it on a server and that I found out wasn't as easy as it sounds. Question one - is there a program that I can get that will allow me to view my phpbb site without putting it on someone's server.

And the second Question is - exactly what Folder can I find my previously posted Articles, I mean even if I can just see them and get the content of them I will be able to salvage at least some.

I really hope someone can help me out.

Thanks!
