It probably IS a phpbb forum, in same shape. But no matter what it is YOU CANNOT upload the files necessary to modify it.

If you want a forum that you can modify and control, you need to get paid hosting.

I can stop all your spam. I can upgrade or update your Board. PM or email me. (Paid support)

A quick explanation:

phpBB is the name of the software. informe.com use that software to supply a free forum to you. They have placed restrictions on access to the database and FTP, both of which are needed to apply any of the MOD(ification)s that you want to add to your board. informe.com may be able to help you out but most likely they won't as a change for you board will impact all the other boards they host too.

Hope that clears the situation up for you...

As the other posts explain, you cannot do it yourself.
You need to get informe to help you.
