Adv. Web AS16: phpBB Install


We’re going to install phpBB shortly.  Like WordPress, the phpBB authors recently came out with a 3.0 version of the software.  To install that, take a look at my OLD phpBB message board HERE for install instructions.  Note that this time, we are going to install a “BZip 2” archive (.bz2 file).  BZIP is a different, but similar program to GZIP that we have used many times.  The command to use it in Putty is:

bzip2 whatever.tar     (create a .bz2 archive from the .tar file)
bunzip2 whatever.bz2     (get the .tar file out of a .bz2 archive)
