    Question Need Advice on Adding a Forum

    Hi
    I have two sites on my account, www.ps-3store.co.uk and www.talkingbaby.co.uk
    PS 3store is my main account and Talking Baby is my sub domain, although they are run as two separate sites.
    I recently tried to build a forum using Fantastico for Talking Baby but got the message. The installation can not be completed: This cpanel version does not support subdomain path detection.
    Obviously this means I could use this method if my forum was on PS 3store but not Talking Baby.
    Iím no expert and donít know how to build a forum my-self, so is there a way round this?

    Cheers Tazpp

    I have installed forum for subdomain via Fantasico, so its possible.
    But the other way is installing by manual.
    You may want to look at various forum softwares from google.

    Simple Machine
    Phpbb3
    Mybb
    Anelectron

    Those are free.

    Vbulletin
    IPB

    Those are not free :)

    You have two accounts - one is your main domain and the other is an addon domain ... (not a sub)

    You should be able to install this forum on either of your accounts ...

    Choose the drop down to locate your domain - talking baby and then choose to install this in a directory called forum - the directory will be created and then you will access this the way you want to ...

    No, you can't go that way. You'll have to login to your forums, then find "Administrator control panel". Go there, login again (possible) and then you are in your admin panel.

    I can only say that try reinstalling it from cPanel, assuming you installed it from there.

    Maybe someone knows better...

    But you can also install it to talkinbaby.co.uk address as well.
    You can remove the old install, then install again to talkingbaby.co.uk/forum or to whatever location...
