How to Install phpBB from Softaculous

Login to cPanel and click on Softaculous App Installer

Under the Forums section on the left menu, click on phpBB.

You will be taken to the Overview page where you can view more information about this particular software.

Click the Install tab.

If you have multiple domains associated with this account, you can select where to install it.

The next two boxes require a directory and database name, neither of which should exist on the server.

Under Site Settings, enter a Site Name, Description and Board Email. These can be changed later on from the application's admin panel.

Type the desired admin username and password that should be used. Also, enter the admin's email.

In most cases, the defaults above should work fine.

Click Install. After a moment, the software will be installed.

You shall see the message Congratulations! the software was installed successfully.
