I'm really ignorant in this field and I need to ask you some questions before buying a forum software.
- My new forum should linked to my subdomain and NOT to my domain, which will be a normal website with a link to the forum. Is all this possible? Another questions is: how can I create a subdomain?
I asked this to Namecheap forum, they told me that I need to have a hosting before creating a subdomain.
- As a newbie, I would need a ready-made forum, very simple to complete. This is the reason why a forum should be paid from users. However I read here that I need to install several things:
- PHP: 5.2.4+
- MySQL: 5.0+
- PHP extensions: MySQLi, GD (with JPEG support), PCRE, SPL, SimpleXML, DOM, JSON, iconv, ctype
- PHP safe_mode off
