__TOC__
Download files and and copy to their correct location I have shown the complete steps below:
{|cellpadding="&quot;4" &quot; cellspacing="&quot;4" &quot; width="&quot;80%"&quot;
|-
|valign="&quot;top" &quot; style="&quot;background:#f3f3f3"&quot;|{|cellpadding="&quot;2" &quot; style="&quot;background:#f3f3f3"&quot;
|-
|valign="&quot;top"&quot;|&amp;nbsp;1&amp;nbsp;||To begin, I have assumed you have downloaded Uniform Server 3.5-Apollo from [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=53691&amp;package_id=48193 SourceForge.net] and unzipped it to your computer. If you intend going live check out this page first [[Home Web Server: Security |security check list]].
'''''Note'':''' You will need the database user name ('''root''') and '''password''' that you set for MySQL. In this tutorial I use the Uniform default password ('''root''') .
|-
|valign="&quot;top"&quot;|&amp;nbsp;2||'''A)''' Next you need to download phpBB 2.0.22 (or newer version 3 has a different installation) from [http://www.phpbb.com phpBB.com] Save it to a convenient folder for example '''c:\phpbb_temp'''
|-
|valign="&quot;top"&quot;|&amp;nbsp;3||'''B)''' Extract the file you downloaded (phpBB-2.0.22.zip) to the current folder ('''right click''' on the file to be extracted and select '''Extract All'''... click '''Next''' and '''Next''' again).
This creates a new folder named: '''phpBB-2.0.22''' that contains a folder named '''phpBB2''' containing all the required files.
|-
|valign="&quot;top"&quot;|&amp;nbsp;4||'''C)''' Copy the folder '''phpBB2''' (and all its content) to the root folder '''www'''.

== Installation - Create phpBB Database ==
Creating the phpBB database is straight forward tables are automatically inserted during installation
{|cellpadding="&quot;4" &quot; cellspacing="&quot;4" &quot;

|valign="&quot;top" &quot; style="&quot;background:#f3f3f3"&quot;|{|cellpadding="&quot;2" &quot; style="&quot;background:#f3f3f3"&quot;
|-
|valign="&quot;top"&quot;|&amp;nbsp;1&amp;nbsp;||Start Uniform Server (Double click on '''Server_Start.bat''').
|-
|valign="&quot;top"&quot;|&amp;nbsp;2||From apanel click on the '''phpMyAdmin''' link. (left menu) Note you can always return to apanel by typing <&lt;nowiki>&gt;http://localhost/apanel/<&lt;/nowiki> &gt; into your browser address bar.
|-
|valign="&quot;top"&quot;|&amp;nbsp;3||'''A''') We want to create a new database. Name it '''phpbb''' (or something easy to remember)
|-
|valign="&quot;top"&quot;|&amp;nbsp;4||'''B)''' Click on Create to create the database

After deleting both folders either refresh the page that displayed the message or go directly to the bulletin board by typing '''<&lt;nowiki>&gt;http://localhost/phpBB2/<&lt;/nowiki>&gt;''' into your browser and login.
Alternatively, type this '''<&lt;nowiki>&gt;http://localhost/phpBB2/admin/<&lt;/nowiki>&gt;''' to access the administration page.
