1) Obtain phpForumPro.zip
2) unzip it into the directory you want (best way is document root 'htdocs' or 'www')
3) Make sure your directory structure is like this:
     phpForumPro/conf (chmod to 777)
     phpForumPro/userimages (chmod to 777)

Attention! Befor running Install script you need to set permissions to make 'conf' directory and it's content files writable!
This involves using the CHMOD command. If you do not understand CHMOD, there are some resources and information listed at http://www.eclecticpixels.com/tutorials/chmod/. CHMOD as follows:
  • chmod 777 conf (this is a directory)
  • chmod 777 all files in the conf directory
    After the installation and final configuration you may chmod "conf" directory to 606 for security purposes.

  • Automatic Installation
    Run install.php in your web browser and follow the instructions.

    Manual Installation
    4) Create a MySQL database (If you have an installed MySQL database and enough experinece in SQL you may pass this step).

    The database needs a database-name, a username, and a password.
    The database-name can be any name beginning with a letter, the username
    should be your unix login name. The password must be different from all
    other passwords in your system for security reasons.

    If you have root access to the MySQL server then you can create the
    database following these instructions:

    4.1. On UNIX prompt write:
          mysqladmin -uroot -p create YourDataBaseName
          (enter MySQL root password)
    4.2. On UNIX prompt write:
          mysql -uroot -p
          (enter MySQL root password)
    4.3. On MySQL prompt write:
          grant select, insert, update, create, alter, delete, drop
          on DATABASENAME.*
          to USERNAME@localhost
          identified by 'PASSWORD' ;
    If you don't have root access then you have to ask the webmaster to
    create a database for you. Just specify the database-name, username,
    and password. Remember that the database password must be different from
    your normal password.

    5) Create database table
    There are two ways:
      - From the command line for your operating system, type
    	% mysql YourDataBaseName < phpForumPro.sql
    This will send the statements into the mysql client and create the table for you. To verify that this was done correctly, go into the mysql client and see.
    	%mysql YourDataBaseName
    You should see
    	Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
    	Your MySQL connection id is 2 to server version: 3.22.32
    	Type 'help' for help.
    now type
    mysql> show tables;

    and you should see the next tables listed
    	| Tables_in_YourDataBaseName |
    	|fd_messages                 |
    	|fd_moderators               |
    	|fd_topics                   |
    	|fd_user                     |

       - use phpMyAdmin or similar DataBase Web Administration tools to run the SQL requests from phpForumPro.sql file

    6) Make changes to the phpForumPro/conf/conf.inc file. This file is well documented, so you should be able to pick out what you need to change fairly easily.

    	########### MySQL DataBase Setting ####################
    	$dbname = "yourDBName"; //DataBase Name
    	$hostname = "mysql.yourdomain.comm:64366"; //Host Name:PORT
    	$username = "yourDBUserName"; //DataBase Access UserName
    	$password = "yourDBPassword"; //DataBase Access Password
    	########### WebDocs real path #################
    	$path="/usr/local/apache/htdocs/phpForumPro"; //real path
    	$catalogurl="http://localhost/phpForumPro"; //Your Site URL
    	$sp="/"; //Windows System '\\'
    	$admin="admin@demo.com"; //Admin email
    	###### The Categories List  ########################
    		"Job & Carrier",
    		"Family & Marriage",
    	//edit or set up you Ad phpForumPro Categories List
    	############## Color configuration for the default HTML table layout 
    	$design["tab_color"]="#d4d5c2"; //HTML Table background color tag setting 
    	$design["tr_color"]="#E4E5D2"; //HTML Table <tr> tag background color setting 
    	$design["td_color"]="white"; //HTML Table <td> tag background color setting 
    	include("../languages/lang_eng.inc"); choose Interface Language
    You may create your own language interface simply translating the message variables in the lang_eng.inc.

    The next part of the 'conf.inc' file is HTML Page Format Code. There are two functions for generation Page Header and Footer bloacks:
    • PageHeader($mode)
    • PageFooter()
    You can customize all HTML tags in these functions.
    Warning ! Don't change <form > elements names and parameters.

    6) Once all this has been done, you should protect the conf/conf.inc file (that contains
    your login/password for db access). Look at your server documentation to find out
    how to do this.
    For the Apache server, you'll need to create an ".htaccess" file (without quotes) in
    the conf subdir that contains:
          <files conf.inc>
              Order Deny,Allow
              Deny From All
    7) Customize
