I'm not too sure if Geocities provide databases, and allows serverside scripting.

After you've unzipped, use the Geocities File Upload Manager to upload each and every file and directory on to the web space. Then follow the instructions that come in the zipped file to install phpBB - however chances are that you will not be able to install phpBB with Geocities, and you'll have to look else where for hosting.

Yup, Geocities does not support php and they don't provide a database for you. You need another host.

Yep, Please read the requirements and find a host that fits them.

Geocities does not.
