OMG.

Ok overall you cannot install a mod to a forum that you are using if you do not have access to FTP. phpBB host such as landsforum as they install the mods and the forum for you and they only give you certain access to mods and other items.

To be able to install a mod you will have to find a host that allows you to use FTP and you have full control over.

Which means NO phpBB hosts that run the board

The link you have just posted is forum hosting, Which like all the other forum and phpBB hosting doesnt allow you to install mods and other items.

So basically if you want to install a mod/style and what ever else. Buy a hosting or find a hosting that allows you FULL control to everything e.g. MYSQL and php5 and FTP access

File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

It allows you to upload and download files on your host.

You need to get a paid host so you have full control and the ability to install mods and all that.

No.
OMFG

How many times can i say it?

With the forum you have now, Its controlled by a host. You cannot install a mod and a style without there special permission. If they say NO then you cant do nothing about it. You do NOT have full control over it.

Now if you brought a host you would have full control over it so you could install a mod and what ever else you want to.

Summary - You cant do diddly squat with the board you have now apart from what the have installed for you.

MYSQL5 is the database where things like post and users are held. YOU NEED IT to install a forum

To download mods you can download them here or look else where.

you do not need to download anything off any site apart from the fresh install files from phpBB and you can only do that when you have a host that you have control over. Just use google or something to search for a host, e.g. Web Hosting and look to buy a good web host which will allow you to have control over it so you can then install mods.

Here's the deal man(woman)

A web host is some place on the net which allows you to create a web site and upload it and allow the public to view it.

A free forum place like you have now is just that , they host forums and place ads all over the place and allow you very limited access to anything other than the admin panel...

Do some research if you are real serious about owning a forum.... Check out this http://www.webhostingtalk.com and find a host there. (Google is also your friend)

then you can download the source code from this site and install your own forum and have full control over it's inner workings and customization...

php5 should be available from your host....

MySQL should also be available form your host and it is a database that stores information about your forum like members, posts, forums, topics, dates etc...


Do some research as it stands right now no one here can help you install any mods with the forum you have now.
