« on: August 02, 2008, 11:19:04 pm »
I recently bought a domain and wish to set up a forum on it. How long does it usually take to get a forum up and running using SMF?

Install takes about 5 minutes. You have to upload the files via ftp or using the webinstall

After setup, how long does it take daily to maintain a fairly good sized forum?

Can someone assist a poor ignoramus?

I tried to install the SMF forum using godaddy.com and got this message:

Warning! You do not appear to have a version of PHP installed on your webserver that meets SMF's minimum installations requirements.
If you are not the host, you will need to ask your host to upgrade, or use a different host - otherwise, please upgrade PHP to a recent version.

If you know for a fact that your PHP version is high enough you may continue, although this is strongly discouraged.

Click here to try installing anyway, but note that this is strongly discouraged.

And if I clicked the Click here I got:

We are sorry but the installer was unable to download the installation package details from the Simple Machines website. You may download the packages manually by using the SMF Download page.

Click here to try this step again.
