I'm very new to creating web-sites so using the scripts to trial. I set up a Joomla 2.5 web-site using the script. So now is there any way to use the script for PhpBB to install the forum into the Joomla web-site or do I need to just learn how to install it from within Joomla's own software ?
I was going to try something similar with WordPress as well. I would like to end up with a web-site which is mainly a blog plus a forum for a co-housing group I am with. So experimenting.
The scripts are very useful as is but I wonder if I can use them in this way ?
Yes you can install PHPBB and WordPress on your Joomla site. Just install it in a sub-directory.
For eg: if you have installed Joomla on the domain example.com/
you can install a Forum on example.com/forum
a blog on example.com/blog
or anything else.
In order to install it in a sub-directory just Enter your desired name in the "In Directory" field.
