first of all sorry if this is the wrong section!
so I want to create a forum that I will be able to host myself for members of my work, were should I start with this?
I have goggled around but they are all hosted by the website themselves.
Any help will be much appreciated!
phpBB was pretty simple to setup. I haven't used it in years so I'd imagine if anything, setup is probably easier. You can host it on any web server. I was hosting it on an Apache web server from out of my house. Online support for phpBB is also pretty good as it has a large community.
