Re-upload the phpBB files. Wordpress has overwritten some files from phpBB.

wordpress uses a index.php file as does phpbb. most likely you overwrote the phpbb index file with the wordpress one.

upload a fresh copy of the phpbb index.php file from your computer to overwrite the one there and see if that fixes it.
