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
