Trying to install phpBB 2.0.xx on Windows XP
Posted on 2007-11-29
I have seemingly successfully installed MySQL 5.0, php 5.25, and Apache.
I have the phpbb files at the root of the htdocs folder in the Apache path. I have tried to run one of the install php files and it just doesn't do anything.
php is installed at c:\program files\php .. The only thing I modified in the php.ini file is to change paths that originally were "c:\php" to "c:\program files\php" as that is the path where it is installed.
I do not have a database created with MySQL as I'm not sure how to do that.
I've installed phpBB before on a web server, but that was when php was already existing and I had a MySQL database already set up (easy to do there). I've also got phpmyadmin at the root of htdocs (I remember that being a good thing to have and was intending on installing it).
Not sure where to go next. Any help is greatly appreciated.
