Install FluxBB 1.4

Database setup

Please enter the requested information in order to setup your database for FluxBB. You must know all the information asked for before proceeding with the installation.

Select your database type

FluxBB currently supports MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite. If your database of choice is missing from the drop-down menu below, it means this PHP environment does not have support for that particular database. More information regarding support for particular versions of each database can be found in the FAQ.

FluxBB has detected that your PHP environment supports two different ways of communicating with MySQL. The two options are called standard and improved. If you are uncertain which one to use, start by trying improved and if that fails, try standard.

FluxBB has detected that your MySQL server might support InnoDB. This would be a good choice if you are planning to run a large forum. If you are uncertain, it is recommended that you do not use InnoDB.

Enter your database server hostname

The address of the database server (example: localhost, db.myhost.com or 192.168.0.15). You can specify a custom port number if your database doesn't run on the default port (example: localhost:3580). For SQLite support, just enter anything or leave it at 'localhost'.

Enter the name of your database

The name of the database that FluxBB will be installed into. The database must exist. For SQLite, this is the relative path to the database file. For security reasons, it is highly recommended to place the SQLite database in a private (not web accessible) directory whenever possible. If the SQLite database file does not exist, FluxBB will attempt to create it.

Enter your database username and password

Enter the username and password with which you connect to the database. Ignore for SQLite.

Enter database table prefix

If you like, you can specify a table prefix. This way you can run multiple copies of FluxBB in the same database (example: foo_).

Administration setup

Please enter the requested information in order to setup an administrator for your FluxBB installation.

Enter Administrator's username

The username of the forum administrator. You can later create more administrators and moderators. Usernames can be between 2 and 25 characters long.

Enter and confirm Administrator's password

Passwords must be at least 4 characters long. Passwords are case sensitive.

Enter Administrator's email

The email address of the forum administrator.

Board setup

Please enter the requested information in order to setup your FluxBB board.

Enter your board's title

The title of this bulletin board (shown at the top of every page).

Enter your board's description

A short description of this bulletin board (shown at the top of every page). This field may contain HTML.

Enter the Base URL of your FluxBB installation

The URL (without trailing slash) of your FluxBB forum (example: http://forum.myhost.com or http://myhost.com/~myuser). This must be correct, otherwise, administrators and moderators will not be able to submit any forms. Please note that the preset value below is just an educated guess by FluxBB.
