Let me start over "I wish".... Other than that, I'm happy with AOL atm... Tongue ... I know it needs a php or mysql server to operate...

They now have some free hosting servious for their forums also (noting up on the free and what it takes to run it).... :wink:

Your hosting company needs to provide php and mysql for it to work. You don't have to currently use either on your site.

Also, these come prepackaged, so you don't have to program them yoursevles (unless you're modding them). They come with complete instructions that explain each step.
