Default phpBB

How do you take the phpBB package and use it on a webserver?

I am using it on Forumer.com and its all good and easy...but i mean...how would I go about managing it on my OWN server?

Make sure you have Mysql AND php on the server.

Download and unzip the install package local, phpbb.com

Upload and point firefox to the install page.
It'* pretty simple, and all in the faq'*
