    Does your host have Fantastico installed with cPanel? If it does you could use that to install a forum to your domain with just a few clicks. Fantastico provides the option to install both PHPBB and SMF. I have heard some comments that installing PHPBB through Fantastico can be a little troublesome in some instances. In any case you can try the install and play around with it to see if it is working for you.

    There are also many experienced and competent forum admins who will install forum software for you, for a few dollars. If you're looking for someone to do that, please feel free to post a request in our our Member Ads & Marketplace forum.

    Cool... I will probably be using Keaton's host, if you see this Keaton; do you have this "Fantastico" with cPanel?

    Off-course you may get help with Google with step-by-step procedure how to setup a Forum in your website. Or, as Fergal suggested go to your cpanel and install forum from fantastico.

    Yeah, but as Fergal said it can go wrong and have an effect later on.

    I'll install it free anyway if your using me.
