have got the forum fully installed and nicely skinned now,it was quite difficult working around as have not worked with full on phpBB for some years and it was a lot more simple then.
had to upload every single tiny file and folder that makes up the coding one by one in server CPanel as FTP wasnt working-so had spent days just uploading.
needs a lot finishing off,but getting there.
getting some mySQL errors,but luckily it isnt because have fucked up uploading, am using free hosting which is pretty good mostly,just has the odd overload as its free shared server hosting.
may transfer it to a paid shared or dedi server if the site gets popular.
