I need help with PHPBB

By Patrick Horn ·
A few months ago, we hired someone to develop an intranet site with a forum. On mu windows 2000 Server machine he put Apache server and PHPBB. The machine crashed. I am trying to re-install PHPBB so I can get the forums back up. The install program is asking me to tell it where my database is. I have not created a database. I have a copy of the old intranet site. I need to know how to point the program to the old database. Or, how to create my own database and re-set up the whole thing. I don't mind doing that. The instructions from the individual that initially set it up have been sketchy at best. According to him, he can't tell me how he set it up, he just got lucky. Can anybody help me with the setup? Is there another program that is more user friendly on initial setup? I just need a little help and guidance. Thanks....
