i want to start my own forum how to start it
Three important things:
1.A webserver, either IIS or Apache.
2. Forum software. vBulletin, invision power board, phpbb are some of them.
3. A server to host the same.
1. More members
2. Good content, etc...
Most paid Linux hosting packages comes with phpBB installed. All that you need is a browser to install and configure it. Even this forum is a phpBB forum. But remember one thing. If you have good number of visitors to your forum, you will require a lot of space and a lot of bandwidth.
But take a look at http://www.proboards.com. May be you don't need to spend even on hosting and domain
try http://www.forumer.com for Phpbb and its ad free
http://www.invisionfree.com/ for IPB or Invision Power board
These are like proboads where your forum is hosted and u need not have a domain and webspace
abbey u forgot the DBMS ... like MySql !
anyways here goto www.galacnet.com and sign up
u dun have to worry abt anything
just sign up there
how many $$$$ wud it cost ------ Forum setup ????
the only investment you need is some webspace
also your internet connection cost
all others come in the linux hosting package.
