    Step One and Step Two

    I don't have a lot of experience, so I could be wrong, but I think that to remove any php/mysql application there are just two steps --

    1. Drop the mysql database. Use mysql monitor or mysqladmin, or if you are a cpanel user, there is usually a link for creating (and deleting) databases.

    2. Erase the application. This assumes that the application is all in one folder. The phpbb does appear to be all in one directory. Just delete that folder and all contents. Presto! No more phpbb.

    Again, I'm a bit new at this, so if I've said anything dumb or off-the-mark, please somebody more knowledgeable correct me, thanks.
