    Since the Ubisoft forums are down, I want to make my own.


    I have downloaded it and thats it.

    What do I do?

    I want to make a forum about WWII ships and tanks and aircraft and IL2.

    How do I do it?


    Thank you so much for your help.:D


    Here is the link:

    phpBB • 1.2.*Installation

    What I need is for somebody to make it into easy instructions.

    This may sound like something you don't wish to hear, but are you aware of how many discussion forums there are out there regarding WWII?

    I googled "WWII discussion forums" and got a return of 1,800,000...

    Perhaps it would save you some time and effort if you found a good site (or two) and just enjoyed that community, much like we have here at ww2aircraft. We have discussions on just about any aspect of WWII as well as everything else under the sun.

    Just my 2 cents worth :)

    That is true. Your forum may not get too many members just due to the variety of different WW2 forums out there.

    ANd using php bb is not one of those "easy" things. There is a lot to know and a lot to do with it.
