Thank you for your help. I have downloaded the zip file of phpBB. It does not have auto installation. I don't know how to install and go to the next step. Is it possible for you to take me step by step thro' the process.
I appreciate any help I can get.

.  If you are using a hosting service, there should be some kind of installer already on the system. Look in your "Control Panel" or other page that has your account info, file manager, &c.
.  If you are installing it on your home computer, I can't be much help. :(

.  BTW, when you marked my reply as Best Answer, it locked that thread and I had to reply like this.

All this is over the top for me.
But thank you for your effort.
I can wait, whenever you get time, see if you can help suggest how to go about it.
