    Hi,

    How do you setup the phpbb on a subdomain, I have created a subdomain, /home/user/forums but when I try to install the BB it wont allow me to.

    Cheers.

    Can you paste the error message you get when you try and set up phpBB. I assume you're using cPanel's installer ? Do you have an available mysql database for that account ?

    Hi Digitalnetwork,

    you created the subdomain to early !
    delete it and :

    1 / firstly you need to install the forum into a sub directory
    like yourdomain.com/forum usually the script should create it by itself

    and then

    2/ you create your subdomain in cPanel

    forum.yourdomain.com , be aware that subdomains need to propagate as well

    and then
    3 / log into the admin of your foum and go to General Admin/Configuration and under General Board Settings/Domain Name change the URL from yourdomain.com to forum.yourdomain.com

    and there you have it , easy :D
