Re: Where can I host phpBB for free?

Free hosts are usually about as good as the cost suggests (ie not very)

Hosting can be had very cheaply these days. Have a look in The Teams signatures and websites as some of us have links to our hosting company.

It is an abandoned mod for 3.0.x, so therefore will never appear in the Extension Database.
