the database Server == you.50free.net

your Username and password for the SQL Database. == site username password etc...

then it set's upo the database for you :)

remove the install and Contrib folders then sign in and set-up your website.

PS, SMTP does not work from 50free.net Forums. they block Port 25 which is required for SMTP mail forwarding. :(

try that, It should work if you are using PhpBB2.0.6 :D

otherwise, If you set the passwords to something simple. PM then to me and i will try to set-up the PhpBB2 Boards for you...

Oh btw, have you set the CHmod for the Files? they need to be set at 755. ;) orPHPBB2 won't work.

(after I set-up the boards (install) I will let you have your Board Admin back .lol. * i have set-up 4 PhpBB boards now :) mine (localhost) (50free) (a private one) and a recent friends Forum.
