This is complicated so you have been warned.
I had phpBB on a free host on the web which used MySQL4.x, PHP 5 and Apache 2.x, with everything on default ports.
Now I wanted the forum on my PC so I took a backup of phpbb databases from in phpMyAdmin and downloaded all files in the phpBB directory.
My PC has MySQL5 on port 3306, PHP 5 and Apache 2.x on port 5325 so I imported the database and files into my server on my PC and changed the config.php file to reflect the changes:
I updated: $dbms to mysql, $dbhost to localhost, and the username and password as appropriate.
Now whenever I go to do something like login and administrtion panel I get connection refused, but I can see my boards and post fine.
