Hello, and Welcome to miniBB!

miniBB forum software project is at the top of our programming ideas, and we are very happy, that you have chosen our product within hundreds of others. If you are going to install it, first of all, you need to know some miniBB requirements:

1) A web server, with PHP and mySQL installed - this program doesn't run as Windows standalone;
2) Knowing your mySQL host, login and password;
3) A minimal imagination about general principles of bulletin board software operation.

Please, read the installation instructions in our manual, which can be found here:
