I will do my very best
This should work for almost any forum software
first of all you need to decide which you are wanting to use, download this, make a folder called forum
and extract the files and folders to that folder.
Next you need to create a mysql database (this will very from host to host), next using a ftp client upload every single file to your website, with some you will need to change the permissions to 777 however I never needed to do that
When all files and folders have been uploaded you need to goto the installation path of the forum to set your forum up and link it to your mysql database. For example a path will look something like this
Then navigate around the folders to you see the welcome screen. Next you need to enter all your mysql information, after that you will need to create your user account so you can login, some may ask if you want to delete the installer, ask it to do so, if it does not ask delete it.
When all that has been completed you should see your forum
you see as these may give you extra hints after you have installed your forum
