A webserver or web hosting account running on any major Operating System with support for PHP
A SQL database system, one of the:

1. MySQL 4.1.3 or above (MySQLi required)
2. MariaDB 5.1 or above

How to create a database for Phpbb

phpBB requires a database engine to store all of its data. Thankfully, it supports a myriad of database servers including SQLite, PostgreSQL MariaDB / MySQL, and even Microsoft SQL server.

We already have MariaDB / MySQL already in place in the LAMP stack, and this is what we will use to create the database for phpBB.

So, log in to the MariaDB server:

$ sudo mysql -u root -p

Then create the database for PHPBB, then create the user to the database and assign all privileges to the user.

GRANT ALL ON phpbb_db.* to 'phpbb_user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'myP@ssword';

Then save the changes and exit the database.


Download and configure Phpbb

With all the components required to support the installation of PHPBB ready, we are going to download the binary file for PHPBB. At the time of writing this down, the latest release of PHPBB is version 3.3.4. Of course, chances are that there will be a newer version by the time you are reading this tutorial.

Change the directory to /opt directory, you can use any directory:

$ cd  /opt

Download the zip file into the /opt directory:

$ sudo wget -c

Once downloaded, unzip the compressed file:

$ unzip

Note: If unzip command is not found, install using apt install unzip.

Then move it to the webroot directory and rename it to Phpbb for simplicity purposes.

$ sudo mv phpBB3 /var/www/html/phpbb

phpBB is secure but make sure to set proper permissions on the webroot directory

To set the appropriate ownership and permissions:

$ sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/phpbb
$ sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/phpbb

Configure a virtual host for Phpbb

A virtual host is required for PHPBB so that Apache can easily host PHPBB files without any conflict with the default Apache configuration.

To create a PHPBB virtual host file, use a text editor to create a file.

$ sudo vim /etc/apache2/sites-available/phpbb.conf

Append the following configuration:

<VirtualHost *:80>
      DocumentRoot /var/www/html/phpbb
      ServerName server-IP or FQDN

      <Directory /var/www/html/phpbb>
                Options FollowSymlinks
                AllowOverride All
                Require all granted

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/your-domain.com_error.log
CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/your-domain.com_access.log combined


For the ServerName attribute, specify your Server’s IP address or Fully Qualified Domain Name.

Once done, save the changes and exit the configuration file.

Next, enable the PHPBB virtual host.

$ sudo a2ensite phpbb

Then enable the Apache rewrite module.

$ sudo a2enmod rewrite

For the changes to come into effect, restart the Apache webserver.

$ sudo systemctl restart apache2

Pros and cons of Phpbb:

1. Easy to set up.
2. Highly customizable.
3. Free to use.
4. Open source with great community support.
5. Frequent updates keep it secure.
6. Multi-language support.

How to Set Up Redirects in cPanel

Redirection is a method of automatically redirecting visitors from one website page to another, which can be done permanently or temporarily. The procedure will be explained in this article.

Follow the steps:

1. Log into your cPanel account

2. Scroll to the Domains section and click Redirects.

3. Under Add Redirect, choose whether you want a Permanent (301) or Temporary (302) redirection.

Note: The difference between a permanent and temporary redirect is that a temporary redirect won’t update your visitors’ bookmarks whereas a permanent one will. You cannot stipulate the length of time you wish a temporary redirect to run using cPanel. You will have to remove the temporary redirect manually when you no longer require it. The instructions for doing this are at the bottom of this page.    

4. Next, select the domain where you want to set up the redirect. This gives you the option to run it on all versions of your domain **All Public Versions** or on individual versions such as http://website or

5. Under this, type in the name of the web page you want to redirect from.

Note: If your page URL is, there’s no need to type the domain name part of the URL, just the part following the slash, e.g. product_page.

6. In the Redirects to the field, type in the full URL (e.g. of the web page where you want visitors to be taken to.

Note: this doesn’t have to be on the same website.

7. Finally, click Add and the redirect will be created. From this point, visitors to your redirected page will be taken to the new destination.

How to remove a redirect

A redirect can be deleted if you no longer want to use it. To do this, first, return to Domains > Redirects. Once there, find the redirect you want to delete under Current Redirects and then click Remove.

How to Add and Configure an FTP Account in cPanel

FTP accounts enable you to upload and manage files on your website. This article explains how to create a new FTP account in cPanel and configure it to limit the directories and files the user has access to.

To create an FTP follow these steps:

1. Log in to cPanel.

2. Scroll to the Files section and click on FTP Accounts.

3. When you enter the FTP Accounts page, you will see the following form:

4. Firstly, add the username of the new user in the Log In field. Please note that the username is created in the same format as an email address. The @yourdomain.tld part of the username is added for you.

5. Enter a password in the Password field and confirm this in the Password (Again) field. The user will need this to log in to their FTP account. We highly recommend using the Password Generator to create a strong password. 

6. The Directory field is where you configure the directories and files to which the new FTP user has access.

7. Important! By default, cPanel auto-populates this field. However, the default directories listed may not be the ones you wish the user to have access to. For the security of your website, it is important to replace the default directories with the specific directory you want the user to have access to.

If you leave the Directory field blank, the user will have access to your home directory and every subdirectory and file within it. Additionally, if this account holder’s username and password fall into the hands of bad actors, they too will have access to your complete home directory. For this reason, we strongly recommend limiting home directory access privileges to essential admin users only.   

8. In the Quota field, you can set a quota for the maximum amount of bandwidth that the new FTP account can use. If you set the quota to unlimited, the user will be able to use all the bandwidth for your cPanel account and this could affect the performance of your website. You can prevent this by limiting the bandwidth.

9. Once you have completed filling in the details, click the Create FTP Account box. The account will then appear in the FTP Accounts list at the bottom of the page.
