Kal,

You were right. The initial setup was easy. I created a MySQL database and a specific directory for phpBB2 to install to, ran the install script, removed the /install & /contrib directories and it was up and running in no time.

Have you tried the EasyMOD Installer MOD?

Nope! Haven't tried EasyMOD (automatic mod installation) since I have so many MODs installed now (around 25) that it doesn't work.... I have to do them all by hand manually.

If I can suggest anything, that is to do the LARGEST mod you want to do using EasyMOD. This'll usually be the attachment mod. That one's a monster. Took me 2-3 hours to do.

I also have a separate backup forum that's a mirror of this one that I use for testing all mods and changes first.

Kal

I was thinking the sub-forum mod might be a bit of a challenge. How about that SpellingCOW MOD? The Lite version is free.

You know, I wonder if it might be nice to create a template of an installed and heavily modded phpBB that you can drop into directory, modify MySQL database info and be off and running for environments needed multiple discussion boards.

SpellingCow's on my list of things to do....! I want to get one that's 100% standalone (not sure if that one is) so that if ever their site is down we're still ok.
