How to install my phpbb website on localhost

Post by gmil »

I had installed phpbb package on my server and run a website when lots of modifications have been done on code and data bases...Can you please let me know how to transfer and install that package (including modifications and data bases) to localhost?

install something like wamp on your computer.
using ftp, download all the phpbb files from your server.

using phpmyadmin, make a database backup from your server.

in your wamp installation, create a new blank database and them import your database backup to it.

copy all the downloaded phpbb files/folders to your www directory in your wamp installation.

done.

Thank you very much Lumpy,
Following your instructions and after attempting to load the database I received that message:
''No data was received to import. Either no file name was submitted, or the file size exceeded the maximum size permitted by your PHP configuration''
Please note that the database is not bigger than the max permitted...
Can you please advise me
