Oh I thought you meant within The Mario Mayhem Forums. I dunno. You should ask Timby. He must've used a good site to make this one look so good Smile

You may be able to use the school one. Actually no, bad idea.
Hey Timby, how did you get a domain/host???

Kirby, I think you have to pay for one if you want one...

Hey Nivlac what would happen if you tried the school as a web host???


RE: Question for timby or anyone who knows how... - Timby - 11-16-2008 11:36 PM

I don't think your school will let you run a web server, unless you have a special class for that!

I do pay each month for server space which I installed the forums on. You will need something that supports php and mysql if you want to install mybb. There are lots of free places where you can just host a forum, but they will probably have popups or some kind of ads which you won't see any money from.

Forums are pretty easy to install if you have a little bit of an idea about file permissions, how websites work with databases and a general idea of php. Of course you can install them pretty easy just by following a walk through. Any specific questions and i'll be glad to help if I can Smilie_v2_Mario

Yeah, the school might be able to access it, and, I don't think they would want a Nintendo site hosted by them...
