Server is MIA

Post by Cptnhowdy69 » Tue Mar 01, 2011 12:07 am

I signed up for a free phpBB forum, and downloaded a style I like form the database.. The documentation says to install the style I first need to unzip the file, then upload the folder to my forums server. However, I have no idea what my host or port is. I'm assuming I use my regular admin login and password. Could someone please give me some directions as to where to find out this info?

Free forum hosts, like the one you are using, do not allow administrators to access the files on the forum's server. Therefore, you will not be able to install styles that you download from the Styles Database on your free hosted forum. This is one of the many drawbacks of using a free forum hosting service to host your forum as opposed to getting some server space of your own and installing phpBB manually. In fact, it's one of the reasons why phpBB.com offers only limited support for phpBB forums hosted using free forum hosts. ;)
