Default PHP forum plz!!!

I want a forum on my website i'm makin', my host supports PHP and mySQL and crap so I was looking for some forum code that I can change and make it fit into my site. It doesn't have to be really complex like this forum. Links, files, whatever.. appreciated

Thanx

pc_boy,

www.phpbb.com <---a open source forum. Just get the package, and install it in your server. Installation is very easy and a good forum too.
But if you are running it on a *free* webspace provider, you may run into lot of database connection problems. Atleast that is what i experienced. You often get errors while accessing forums [due to traffic etc etc] . In that case, you can use this link www.armleg.com , they provide you free forum ,all setup . Just need to register and you are the admin of that board.

Peace upon you all

use the php support prgram from this site http://www.php.net/get/php-4.3.1-Win.../from/a/mirror

to make the IIS any version to support and run php applications

and also to run mysql database
and you can use vbulletin as a ready to go froum, it's one of the best and most forums are use it
