Description
phpBB QuickInstall is a developer tool used to create multiple phpBB3 installations. You can quickly install phpBB3 boards with a single mouse click.

QuickInstall was made to support the community of phpBB extension developers (and previously MOD authors). It speeds up and simplifies the process of creating separate vanilla phpBB environments to safely install, develop and test extensions in without having to worry about conflicts.

⚠️ QuickInstall is not intended for use on a live production web site. QuickInstall stores all passwords in a plain text file. They are hidden in the user interface, but can be read by anyone with access to the QuickInstall folder. Therefor, if you do use QuickInstall on a public server, you do so at your own risk and must protect access to the folder where it resides from unauthorised users. No support is given for QuickInstall other than local use.

Installation & Setup
  1. Download QuickInstall, extract it and copy the QuickInstall folder to your local web server.
  2. Download a copy of phpBB3 (3.0.x - 3.3.x), extract it and move the phpBB3 folder into sources/.
  3. Point your browser to the QuickInstall folder (e.g., https://localhost/quickinstall). You should be taken directly to the "Install QuickInstall" page to complete the set up process.
Upgrading
  1. Download the latest QuickInstall and unzip it. Copy everything into your QuickInstall folder except for the boards/, sources/ and settings/ folders.
You can follow and contribute to QI's development on github.
Support questions should be asked under the Discussion/Support tab here.
