Search on google for "free PHP editor". Or use notepad.

Also, please be aware that it's "know", not "noe". And it's "the", not "teh".


Now, if you want to actually execute the PHP files on your own PC, you will need to run Apache with the PHP module and a mySQL server.

I suggest this all-in-one:

The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry

So tuk boy - make sure you give us the URL for the new Tuk forum :D

C'mon guys for all we know he (or she) might be a youngster just starting out in the forum making world - The forum could be about knitting fluffy eared hand pupets or muppets on strings.

Anyways hows about give Tuk a hand?

A Fluffy eared hand puppets forum would probably be the better choice

Hey Tuk Boy,

I had set up both sometime back...and IMHO I would go for vbulletin (a bit biased and I cant remember why....). If you willing to dish out a bit the service is great and I personally thought it was very straight forward to use vbulletin.

This was sometime ago - so yes, best to look up the recent reviews.

Good luck and yes, do send us a link when you are done !
