How to make a forum from 0 with xampp and phpbb - HD video tutorial

As I promised in other video tutorials, today we present a forum from scratch on your own computer at home without requiring input from specialists in web design and web programing.

In this video tutorial we will use two components, on the one hand we have the application XAMPP we will give Apache server, PHP and MySQL that are essential to the operation of a CMS written in PHP, XAMPP also contains phpmyadmin that help us to walk in basement data more easily through a GUI, we also have a FileZilla fTP server for when we are not home and to climb (upload) cite something necessarily server.

The main component that we use will be phpbb3 which is a forum wrote a PHP and is very popular in the world but also to us lately, this forum has a ton of options and also has a great support from the community phpbb from across the Net, phpbb offers the possibility to make changes through plugins that can be found on the official website but not only, also support for themes is very good they are finding with great ease on phpBB site and on other sites that support this exciting project.

I forgot to tell you all the tools we will use in the tutorials are free, because the best web tools are generally free (apache, mysql, php, phpmyadmin, xampp, wamp server, joomla, phpbb and many more)… … .. and some say that free software is not good… ..!

I think that 70 - 80% of all servers in the world are supported by apache, which is as free as possible, 80% of Romanian websites are written in PHP which is also free, Mysql is the database that supports almost all sites in romania and which is also free and the list goes on, don't think that the free software is not good, please be nice!

On this subject we also conducted a series of video tutorials that you can find on our site using the search engine or categories using the side bar.

  2. The problem would not be the money per month for the host… but another would be the question that those who want to do this have to ask themselves: is it worth it? Who the hell forgives me for reading forums today? only desperate people who can't find a solution for the rest, they don't care about anything! neither to give advice, nor to help, just to find a solution to the problem (I mean the visitor / visitors of the forum) and your word, if n -you have a big download button or phases filmed with the phone as one breaks his neck and falls on his nose… no one visits… I don't want to discourage but that's it!

  3. Robciuc Ionut said

    I have a question that I'd like to respond to two admins of this site. I want to do a tutorial from a prieeten and do not know what program, but that would be like when I shoot what to do mn in PC and tutorials as this is, but when intregisteraza consume less MB. So that I had a program where when I made 7 minutes of tutorial that took 110MB mio. And another thing, what is HD's, with what I shoot now?

  4. @Robciuc Ionut: 110M at 7 minutes of video content do you think much? You may not know how it is…. Mp3 content, track is not one with video content! in video content you have images, which consume space, it's not just sound… obviously you can make them take up less but the quality of the video will also decrease! you will have a bad resolution, distorted image, and most likely your friend will not understand any of the images in the tutorial! Walk the settings! capture on a delimited portion not in full screen! HD means high definition and you can't do it just with the capture software! See that there are tutorials on youtube on how to set up to install Cam Studio a free capture software… you have explanations at what resolution to use the capture to have a good image, what sound decoder that the microphone will record to use and many more others… enter youtube and write to search “Cam Studio”

  5. Robciuc Ionut said

    Thank you Adrian.

  6. Try searching Robciuc Ionut
    You must SnagIt7 descutci with him is simple and can capture video and audio with many more options, Maut, text, including integrates and Ofice.

  7. Robciuc Ionut said

    I downlaod it, but I want to ask you something, for example if you record video and audio on a lower resolution than FULL SCREEN, I handle everything so much sp [Atiu in MB? Thank you in advance.

  8. @Robciuc Ionut: From what I see you are a beginner, I still advise you until you reach a certain maturity in using the capture software to work with cam studio is the simplest, Yes, being less image in automatic capture will take up less memory, you can convince yourself… make a tutorial at a full screen resolution and one at a delimited portion both of the same duration and convince!

  9. @Robciuc Ionut: To convince yourself of the power of Cam studio and why clarity can make the tutorials enter youtube and youtube to search write like this "Free screen recording software - Camstudio 2.5" without quotes, enter and click on the first result, I guarantee that you will be surprised, and it will be exactly what you are looking for! this is the tutorial I was telling you about… it tells you how to set it for the best possible capture. Success!

  10. mda… bv boys

  11. Robciuc Ionut said

    I myself Cam study, and what surprises me is that I can shoot my way, ie, all the resolution.

  12. Robciuc Ionut said

    Adrian can you find me a good link to download Cam Studio 2.5? I searched but they had 225 MB and I don't think Cam Studio would be that big. Thank you

  13. @Robciuc Ionut: You see that to the right of the video on youtube that boy also put the download links, I checked that they are the best ones, the boy is serious, he doesn't care about nonsense… he has about 85 tutorials made with cam studio about a free GIMP editor to the right of the video is a picture small with it and a "subscribe" button just below it are the download links to the DVix and Cam studio Codecs, they are official, Cam Studio has 1,4MB… I would give you the links here but I don't know if the admins will let them be displayed on the site here are the links
    Cam Studio = >>
    DivX Codec = >>

    And in case you want sound films need to be formed and MP3
    Lame MP3 = >>
    You will not necessarily need mp3 blades unless you are more demanding and want a higher quality sound… but you need a DivX Codec !!! Success!!!

    Please tell me, this forum, as we create it customize directly from localhost, can be uploaded on a server (domain)? I tried to install it directly on the Net but it gives me errors (at register_globals it gives me No and cache, files, store gives me Unwritable) and does not continue the installation. If I put it locally it works for me…

  20. I have the feeling that the installation does not work because it sees my cache / files / store "Unwritable". What to do?

  21. @Johnny B.: Haven't heard of Google? is support for this forum in Romanian it is full of solutions just come from it… you can ask questions you can find solutions to everything you are interested in ite look here

  26. @danezu:
    Apache needs some ports from you: 80 and 443 and 8080 occasionally if they are occupied by other applications must uninstall those applications.
    I do not know what you have installed on your computer but must be careful to chat and remote applications, also have to be careful firewall settings that usually blocks the servers.

  60. Cristi want to ask you something
    Can make a forum and WAMP?

    • wasyCristi want to ask you something :)
      Can make a forum and WAMP?  

      Yes of course, you can use WAMP instead of XAMPP, WAMP or XAMPP packages are just tools, they include: Apache, MySQL, PHP.
      With these packages you put online any sites not only phpBB forum.

  61. I tried many I do not give out any such

  62. You do not have permission to access / phpmyadmin / on this server.
    here I do not know what to do

    • Ioneltaiefrunze said

      wasy: You do not have permission to access / phpmyadmin / on this server.
      here I do not know what to do help  

      Instead of "http: // your ip / phpmyadmin" try "localhost / phpmyadmin" in the browser. It probably only accepts connections from localhost, and that's why you get the error in question.

  63. I solved this was the phpmyadmin.conf
    now another error

    Welcome to phpMyAdmin

    Said MySQL:
    # 2003 - Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)

  64. Ms tutorial than I quit my xamp.Acuma trebe WAMP and use a tutorial how to administer forum

      With XAMPP you can turn your PC into a server, of course it is better to use your computer as a server, find the 2-3 hosting per month, you will only xampp for testing, not that there would cope but I do not think it's good to buzzing your computer all day and all night in my head.

      • By the way I found something on the net about B2Evolution now you know?

    • simply buy a domain account with domain purchase and enter the ip of your pc and you have bought the domain name instead of localhost.

  94. better open an account on "" where you have 10 GB of space, you have PHP, MYSQL… and you can install from your PC any site or forum (upload it on the server or you can install directly from the control panel on the site: phpbb, joomla, wordpress and dozens of other cms; I forgot to say EVERYTHING IS FREE AND FOREVER.

  101. Anonymous:
    Help do not know how to put it on host `put it with all XAMP?

    You just put the host files in htdocs folder, you can not move all the XAMP, the data center servers are already installed PHP, MySQL, Apache and others.
    On the server you will have a folder called "www" or "public_html", put in it the files you have in "htdocs" and of course transfer the database.

  105. Hi… I bought domain from ROTLD, I made a forum with the help of the tutorial above, I set my ip to Nameservers (from rotld), when I access http://www.domeniul appears to me “Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage” and when I access http: // my ip address appears to me “Access forbidden!
    New XAMPP security concept:
    Access to the requested object is only available on the local network.
    This setting can be configured in the “httpd-xampp.conf” folder.
    Please contact the webmaster you if you think this is a server error.
    Error 403 ”
    Mention that forum are functioning with http://localhost/phpbb3/ with or without xampp on.
    I have my nerves stretched to the limit….
    Can someone help me? What should I do?

    • Well yes it makes sense sati give that error.
      you must do a port forwarding sati on your rooter here's a tutorial ,
      what does this do ?, well by that it tells your external chain where to look in your internal chain through internal ip and port ie 192.168.1.x enter at start> cmd and write in cmd ipconfig and see your ip and port, xampp port and 80.

  106. Hello!
    I finished the forum with your help, you can see it ………….-Edited-….

    Actually I did forum soon but I needed content and create content for that I posted on there to download is done to me.
    Mihnea to answer: you need to have web hosting (hosting hosting) may be hosting or free hosting I recommend you pay. Then you ROTLD name servers as crystal missed more tutorials and expects to make updates that I 16 hours in my case. Meanwhile you wait update the climb (chicken) what you have in htdocs folder "public_html" or "www" and transfer the database (database). If you paid hosting they help and those from whom you took.
    Good luck …

    Salve! I have a little problem: when I try to connect my ip (no-ip domain) I automatically load the xampp page (instead of my forum page).
    To show me my forum should I connect like this: http://ip-meu/phpbb3
    How and where do I set I connect http://ip-meu and to show me directly forum?
    Thank you in advance!

    • You web server (nginx, apache)
      You router?
      If you router, you need to do port forwarding.
      If you have antivirus / firewall, you must disable it to set it properly (if you're good)
      On your local work?

  114. barosane I have other problems because the phpb has been updated and I don't know how to do acm, it's not like in the video
