WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I am trying to install phpBB, to integrate with Wordpress. I was wondering if anyone has installed phpBB on webfaction? Should I create a php app, and a database - and then drop phpBB in here? Does anyone have experience doing this - appreciate your help! Thanks.

The basic instructions for installing any PHP app are as follows:

  1. Create a new static/cgi/php app

  2. Create a new MySQL database

  3. Upload your application's files into ~/webapps/name_of_your_new_app

  4. Add your new app to a site

  5. Go to your new site and follow the application installation steps from there

I haven't done this with PHPBB, but it has worked just fine for other PHP forum software.
