Installation of phpBB 3.0 on i is a relatively simple task.  For this guide, we will assume that Zend Core and MySQL are already configured and running on the system.

*Go to the [[http://www.phpbb.com | phpBB Website ]] and download the latest stable version of the software.  For me, this was 3.0.0 .

*Unzip the downloaded file to your PC.

*Create a folder in the Zend Core directory on your IFS.  For my install, the path was '/www/zendcore/htdocs/forum/".

*Copy the contents extracted from the ZIP file into the new directory created on the IFS.  This can be done using most FTP programs as well as with Operations Navigator.

*Create a database in MySQL (be sure to write down the database name, user name, and password) :
# Go into the PASE environment (STRQSH)
# cd /usr/local/mysql/bin/
# $ mysql -u root
# CREATE DATABASE phpBB;
# GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON phpBB.* TO "phpBB"@"localhost" IDENTIFIED BY "password";
# FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
# EXIT

*Navigate your browser to http://yourwebsite:89/phpbbdirectory

*The installation program will launch.

*If all of the requirements pass on the first page (and they should), click Start Install.

*On the Database page, choose MySQL with MySQLi Extensions.

*Fill in the same database information that you used when creating the database.

*Continue to the next screen and create your administrator account for the bulletin board.

*Fill in the rest of the screens in the installation process.

phpBB is now installed and ready to use.

''Note:''

This is specific to our environment because of the configuration of our multiple Apache Servers (See [[Main/PmWikiInfo]]).  I had to add a couple of entries to our httpd.conf file on our Port 80 Apache server to facilitate the proxy passthrough to our Port 89 Apache server where ZendCore PHP resides.
