Does Normal WordPress hosting works with PHPBB?

Post by hanna.nicholson33 » Tue Apr 17, 2018 12:04 pm

Hi,

I have a website that is running on WordPress. Now I would like to add bulletin board on my website with PHPBB. Had a discussion with tech guy and he agreed to do it for me, however, I am bit confused in choosing the hosting. I already have a WordPress hosting that is working smoothly for me. Now my question is that should I look for a new hosting or use the same hosting for my website.

I previously chose the hosting from WordPress review website - from there I opted WPEngine. The service works fine to me and I am a happy customer. Can anyone help me to decide with this also?

If your host can satisfy the needed requirements then you can use phpBB.

Incidentally, 'Wordpress Hosting' is just a package name your host has come up with.

yep, there is really no such thing as "wordpress hosting". any server that meets the requirements to run a wordpress blog can run phpbb.
the requirements for both are the same. php and a database such as mysql. that is basically it.

so, if you have someone that knows how to use ftp to install programs on a hosting account then they should be able to install phpbb right along side of wp.
