    Guess cause SMF 1.1.6 is not meant for windows, I'm using windows platform.

    I don't know how to start working on the forum design in windows!!

    It uses YaBB I guess!!

    What shall I do?!


    P.S. I'm downloading YaBB right now!

      Again the downloading wasn't successful, It gives me an Icon on the desk top which won't run!!(I've given the screen shot)

      Wait I'm thinking maybe I need to first upload my website on the server, maybe only then I can create the forum! Is that the case?

      Ivy - if you are trying to run something from your puter using .PHP you won't have any luck - unless you are set up with your own server software on your hard drive. 

      The PHP will normally run itself only on a host server because that will have PHP available in almost all cases these days.  So - your YAbb will have to be placed on a web host server to operate for you, tho you could get it running at home for test purposes if you set up your own server.

      No link handy but within CH there should be some info about setting up a server on your own machine.

      SMF is perfect for Windows. Does your webhost have cPanel installed?

      I still wouldent recommend a Windows server... thats the one thing that I dont trust with Windows. I had so many security permission issues with Server 2003... even with a program such as XAMPP, I still wouldent... I do use XAMPP as a temporary server when the main one is down though.

      As said above, in order to run SMF, you need PHP for servers, and for YaBB, you need Perl for servers.

      Shucks - had forgotten YAbb was Perl - so definite need there for SSI.

      So many forum apps are php these days.

      I have mentioned before a while ago - I do find ''Vertrigo" a very suitable 'on board' server platform for testing purposes.

      I'd run a server with Linux.  I hope to do so, one day...

        So I bought:

        1)Adobe Dreamweaver
        2)Adobe Photoshop
        3)Adobe Illustrator

        Now I'm happy!!

          I'm sorry Aegis, I don't know what I was thinking when I answered this question last time, I must have been in a real hurry!

          Its Creative suite 3 Family

          Very cool -- I was just curious!  I believe that includes the "bridge" software which lets you move your projects between programs.  Nice.

          For a beginner, I highly suggest you look into any service that has cPanel or a similar web administration program.
          It just makes things easier, and ease is a good thing, I have learned.

          Most good hosts that have cPanel arent overly expensive, even though subscriptions to cPanel are very expensive.
