  4. Follow onscreen instructions
    1. Select your database type (MySQL recommended)
    2. Enter your database information
    3. Choose the rest of the settings for your forum
    4. Once you click "Install", you will be given a config.xml file. Download it and place it in the forum root directory.
    5. If you are not sure with the .htaccess or nginx configuration information, please read the server guide
  5. Congratulations, you have a working forum!
