  2. Click the PHPBB icon.
  3. Click the Add New button.
  4. Enter a directory name.
  5. Select the domain name to which you'd like to install the forum.
  6. Click the Add button.
  7. Onscreen you will see a listing for your new forum, with the web address you can use to access it. Typically you would link to this address from your website homepage.

    Once you have added a forum you will want to configure it for your needs.

  8. Click the Admin button adjacent to the phpBB forum you just installed.
  9. You wil be prompted for a Username and Password. This information was e-mailed to you during installation.
