a tar.gz file can be opened on Windows using http://www.winzip.com, if you are referring to the phpBB 1.4.x line, this is a forum for the new 2.0 version, I don't think theyre handling any 1.4.x support or questions here, just so you know =)


www.phpbb.com has the 1.4.x stuff

Yes, tar is a *nix type of zip. Tar puts all of the files in one big file, and gzip shrinks it down.

You should be able to get utils that can open it, I think winzip or winrar or winace can do it. You also should be able to get a .zip file from the same place that you got your gzipped tar file.

Try reading the forum. There are already numerous threads about this. :) But be aware that phpBB 2 is still in beta testing and should not be used unless you absolutely know what you're doing.

Locking this thread. Look around, it's quite clearly posted around here numerous times.
