Smile Setting up and Running forum (Like Sgwebhostingtalk.com)

Hi

I want to setup community forum. Need experts advise.

1. What forum I should use (vBulletin or phpBB)
2. Do I need to know php?
3. I need to run advertisements. Does it require programming?
4. Security:
What are the security settings precautions I should take care.
What should I do if some one post abusive or threatening message if police come and knocking my door.
5. Can I host in shared hosting?


Thanks

hi,

usually this type of forum can start off in shared hosting and when the traffic goes high, you may need to upgrade to higher end..

you dont need to know the programming as most of the configuration is UI based, but it's good if you know the programming language so that you can modify the code to meet your requirements.

Go for a good shared hosting company as their hosting may have already pre-secured..
