    Hello, have a good day.

    Can anyone please guide me on how to open and host a new forum site? It will be related to classic automobiles.
    This forum works beautifully well and would like to know who supplies the host service for it in order to start one.
    Am not skilled in computing or setting-up forums, please be gentle with the least possible use of acronyms and do not assume I am older than 7 :rolleyes: for this holding-hand guidance.
    Thanks,
    Miguel

    Hello,

    Setting up a forum is only possible when you have a webserver.
    Here is a link on how to setup a forum with phpBB.

    phpBB is an open source program that uses a database to store the messages.

    Greetings,
    Bertus
