No no. I meant that hosting a phpBB forum on goDaddy is terrible. They have many conflicts and it's a pain to try to get it to work.
I guess I'm lucky, then. I had no problems at all to move my forum to godaddy this weekend. I didn't use the "automatic" installation from godaddy, though. I used the instructions found at phpbb.com
I had SQL scripts for each table in my previous forum and I used those scripts in my new database at godaddy. The forum started working inmediately.
