This may be a dumb question to some of you, but I know nothing about PHP so here it is-I tried to install a PHP board on my site and I need some kind of database for it to work. I assume SQL? I have no idea what to do, can someone point me in the right direction? Thx

You are most likely going to want to use a MySQL database.

You will either need to ask for access from your web host if you don't already have it, or install mysql on your server and compile php w/ mysql support.

I got it now. I had to upload my config file manually. It wasn't working throught the web based panel.
