QuickInstall is a tool we built to support the community of phpBB extension developers (and previously MOD authors). It simplifies and accelerates the process of creating and configuring local phpBB3 forum installations. These boards can then be used to safely install, develop and test extensions in isolation without having to worry about external conflicts.

⚠️ QuickInstall is not intended for use on a live production website.
QuickInstall stores all board and database passwords in a plain text file. They are hidden in the user interface, but can be read by anyone with access to the QuickInstall directory. Therefore, if you do use QuickInstall on a public server, you do so at your own risk and must protect access to the directory where it resides from unauthorised users. No support is provided 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.
  1. Download the latest QuickInstall and unzip it.
  2. 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.
