phpbb once used to be a great software, but in the past it has had too many security holes, and it really sucks if you have to update your forum software every few weeks. It might be ok if you run a small forum, but otherwise I recommend to use another forum software, maybe even a commercial one like vBulletin. This forum uses vBulletin, and I'm very glad we spent the money for it - we never had any problems, and it's a great piece of software.
