Question [Ubuntu Server] Setting up a PhPBB forum


Hey all, I'm running a server with the Ubuntu Server distro (latest I think) and I was wondering how I was going to install a PhPBB board on my website, because without all that fancy interface I wonder how I can set all this adequately. I have found a couple of pages explaining how to install PhP5 and MySQL so I guess I'm alright ( I already have Apache set up of course). So if anyone could give me some advice on how to do it It would be greatly appreciated, pages, tutorial, tips anything really.



P.S: I have a machine with Windows vista if connecting throught FTP could be an option.
