GoDaddy has an account control panel, you need to find the link that takes you to the website controls.
There you create a mysql database and user name and password.
After that, you can use secure ftp to upload the files instead of the control panel, if you wish.

Read the phorum install.txt in the docs directory. It walks you through the process.

If there is something specific you don't understand, ask about that specifically, please.

Upload it to the directory you want to use, if it does not exist, create it.

GoDaddy won't let you navigate above the directory your domain name is attached to.
If you want visitors to arrive at your phorum using the " www. xyz. com domain name only without needing to select a different link after arriving on your website, there are two choices, a redirect to another directory, or upload phorum to the web root directory.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply Scott, Just to let you know I've managed to get phorum installed properly. I just wanted to ask I've installed version 5.2.23 and I've installed the quidditch theme. I've looked around the settings as i would like to upload my own that I've created but i can't see any setting in the admin panel that allows me to do this. Any help with this please?

Thanks
