Reason I ask is because MySQL 4.0.1 is still in the development stages, but they say its safe for use. I suppose your right though I just wanted some kind of confirmation.

if i remember correctly (been AFK for a bit) there is an option in the install for mysql 3.x and 4.x

so if nothing else give it a try - can't hurt ;) (if you are upgrading a board just be SURE to make a backup of your database)

No upgrading here! :D Actually I'm just getting started with all this stuff, MySQL, phpbb, website design, etc. I want a fast reliable board with tons and tons of features.

How easy is phpbb to install? I've been reading around and some of the different bb's are pretty difficult to set up.

i tell you this:

i have i´ve installed phpbb two or three times, and is NOTHING dificult. It asks you for some settings for admin user, and data base infromation.
If you have this info, you will not have any trouble to do it.

The install script is really good.

Yes, phpBB supports mysql4 (note the drop-down during installation and the mysql4 schema. :D)
You need to make sure mysql is compiled in to php, you need to make sure you have a webserver such as Apache (sorry if you feel like I'm babying you, this is as much for me as it is for you so I make sure I don't forget something. :P) Then you will need to set up a user that has the correct permissions. You will need to know the host to connect to (usually localhost), a database, and you will need your password/username. phpBB takes care of the rest! Oh yeah, make sure you chmod config.php 777 if you are on a *nix system.

first of all, the install script, asks you if have mysql 4.xx. :D

need :...
path where script is installed.
name, user, host and pasword of your database
administrator user name, and password
e mail adress

And that´s it. You are able to install ir with these data.

Script asks you if you are insalling or upgrading.

good luck.
