    i had followed a guide and installed apache2, php5, mysql. i got phpbb3 to install as far as apt-get but when i try to run the install through a browser i cant get to it says not found, i have ispconfig 3 setup and working on it, i also have squirrel mail setup, the idea is to host a website or a few and to host some forums as well as run a mail server off of a personal pc

    ran the php.test file and that is working,i can access phpmyadmin, is their something i supposed to setup with these before i can install phpbb3?


    ill give that link a try when i get home

    How exactly did you install phpbb3? What's the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /etc/apache2/conf.d/
    ?
