I want to setup forums for my website. I have got few software from sourceforge.net.
Can anybody guide me with the procedure of how to setup forums?

And it would be of more help if someone can tell me what software is reliable.

I am pretty sure that all the forums you download will include a readme file where you can read what steps are to be taken to implement your forum.

A simple way to see which forum which is the most popular would be to look how popular that project is at sourceforge.

Did you add that user to your mysql users? Mysql has it's own user database, it does not use the linux userdb.

I am trying to install the phpBB forums and at the final step i am getting the folllowing error.



**************************************************************************************************** ******************************

Your config file is un-writeable at present. A copy of the config file will be downloaded to your computer when you click the button below. You should upload this file to the same directory as phpBB 2. Once this is done you should log in using the administrator name and password you provided on the previous form and visit the admin control center (a link will appear at the bottom of each screen once logged in) to check the general configuration. Thank you for choosing phpBB 2.


Since FTP extensions are enabled in this version of PHP you may also be given the option of first trying to automatically FTP the config file into place.
**************************************************************************************************** *******************************

Before starting the installation, I have given all the permissions to config.php.
I dont know why this problem is persisting. Its not able to write.

I think this should be told : I am installing phpBB on Linux.
