  • Phåråoh: Good to see admin is still on top of things.  Some people don't take your VOLUNTEER work for granted.  We GREATLY appreciate it, whether it's a small thing or a major issue.

  • ♦ Ninja ZX-10RR ♦: Kindly wait for replies in each topic, venting in the shoutbox is not going to help, I'm afraid. We are all volunteers and we might not be able to be online 24/7. Thank you for your understanding.

Forum building from scratch, PHP?
« on: August 02, 2011, 09:13:48 am »
I only know the basic on HTML, I have used MyBB for a while, know how it works etc.. just got me website online ( and
b ut i want to build my own Forum, I use MySQL 5.x, so i know how that works as well, but i want to know wether to use PHP, Python, etc.. i want to avoid the MS VB etc.. I don't use Windows.

I have had a look for more like MyBB but dont' seem to get anything as good, and i don't knwo how to edit it so i can customize it as i dont' know PHP and i dont' want to *F*u*k* it up lol

(Site info,, I have browesed the net for months and about a year nearly, as I am looking into how to install OSX onto AMD based PC but there isn't much out there so i have done a forum just for AMD OSX, (site in 2 days only) and I just want to personlize it

1 what programming language to program with?

2 Any free forum OS releases like MyBB

3 I'm using 000webhost (free) to host so anything that will work with them

thank you
