Installation for p8pBB Bridge rookies.....

Post by whamprod » January 20th, 2016, 2:00 pm

Hello,

I have three questions regarding installation of p8pBB bridge......
  1. Do I understand correctly from the "requirements" page that you have to separately install phpbb into the website root first, and after that you then install the Joomla component?
  2. OR, does p8pBB bridge install phpbb as part of the component installation? (The example I am thinking of is a bridge for OpenCart called JooCart, which installs the OpenCart store software along with the Joomla bridge for it, as one big component.)
  3. Lastly, is there an installation tutorial somewhere?
Thanks in advance for answers.

1. Yes, phpBB should be installed before using bridge for phpBB.

2. Our bridge doesn't install phpBB. It's just a bridge.

3. Installation tutorial is available for our customers in customer area.
