do you know this for certain? do you have a freeserver.com account?
phpbb should never be installed inside the cgi-gin folder. as far as that goes, php should not be installed as a cgi module to start with.
if you install to the cgi folder, then some or all of your images will not work as well as other things.
if your host does not know how to setup their servers correctly for php to work, then I would suggest finding a better host.
