    Hi

    Can anyone please tell me what is MySQL and PHP?

    Why can't I install phpbb in IE7? Can anyone tell me how to install it? Is something (some kind of software..?) needed for it to run? How can I upload that on my website (I have a website on googlepages) and make sure that only those wom I want will be able to post there? (Using a password maybe..).

    Please help me.

    Aditya

    PHP is a server-side scripting language that lets you generate dynamic HTML content. It has a C-like format with lots of inbuilt functions that make it specialised for such situations. Another such server-side scripting language is ASP which is developped and marketed by Microsoft for Windows. PHP on the otherhand is opensource and is cross-platform compatible (it will run on Windows, Linux, etc). PHP is available at http://www.php.net

    MySQL is a SQL Database software... SQL stands for Structured Query Language - it consists of a series of commands that all compatible software (such as MySQL, miniSQL, PostgreSQL) must contain... For instance, there are commands to retrieve data, filter it, sort it, add/delete data, etc. By making all the software retain the same commands and format, it is easier for programs from PHP, etc to migrate from one database server to another if the need arises. You can find MySQL at http://www.mysql.com

    @mediator: The backend digit uses is MySQL only. PHP+MySQL is the best combo.

    If you want to install PHPBB on your pc & then you can download software called Appserv from http://www.appservnetwork.com/ which will install PHP & Mysql on your PC if you have XP as OS.
    Then you will able to install & test PHPBB in your local PC

    It has nothing to do with IE7
