How to install phpBB from Subversion (svn)

It’s pretty simple to install phpBB from subversion, but I couldn’t find any instructions online, so I decided to write some.

Firstly, checkout the phpBB 3.0.x branch directory which always contains the latest stable code. You can do this with the following command:

svn checkout forum

Where forum is the directory you want to install the forum into. Once all the code has been checked out, visit the the forum url in your web browser.


This will take you to an install wizard, which will guide you through the remaining steps. It’s as simple as that!

  1. I went through the process of installing phpBB the other day using this exact process.

    Unlike uploading via ftp, the subversion repo allows you to install in seconds and upgrade with ease!

  2. I need a driver for my phillips snn6500 wireless netcard
    or smc2632 wireless net card.
    I can`t make them run on linpus linux lite.

    Please help.
