Have a look at what your favourite forum runs. If it runs on GNU/Linux and it's not commercially licensed maybe try it. Else http://freshmeat.net/search?q=forum&submit=Search, http://sourceforge.net/search/?type_...ft&words=forum, http://savannah.gnu.org/search/?word...xact=1#options and http://developer.berlios.de/search/?...d=&words=forum all list OSS forum software and so would your favourite searchengine. Read some and if you feel up to it download it. Most choices come with installation information (usually text files called "README", "INSTALL"), might have extensive documentation on their site, in a Wiki or have a forum you could ask in. Else just pick three and ask for opinions?

^It seems you have just started learning php. If that's the case, then it might not be possible for you to create your own forum just now. If you need it urgently, you can use one of the many available php bulletin boards like myBB, phpBB, bbPress. Also, you can study their code to get idea how you should proceed to create your own forum.

I agree.

On top of that, and with all due respect, you should not make your efforts publicly accessable until you know what you're doing. As starting programmer you'll make lots of mistakes, some of which will make it very easy for anyone to breach the security of your machine.

Unable to Start MySQL Server

I have followed the instructions (at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...1/#post1745970) regarding MYSQL but I m getting this

root@vps2 [/etc]# /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'mypasswordhere'
/usr/bin/mysqladmin: connect to server at 'localhost' failed
error: 'Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)'
Check that mysqld is running and that the socket: '/tmp/mysql.sock' exists!
mysql.sock doesnt exist anywhere.
please help

Hi.

Check the log at /var/log/mysql.log - there's usually something in there if MySQL won't start.
