ok guys. I have a web site for my gaming clan that currently is hosted on a really cheap host. basically its an "instant site" using phpnuke and mysql. Site for dummies really.

however we have certain level of expactions for service and what to be able to do more with the site than what we could there. There is no real data that needs to be moved over other than some of our phpnuke themes wich is no big deal.

Howver our new provider setus up with everthing to get started only we have to setup phpnuk and mysql ourselves. I'm a noob with this and need to get some help. Its no problem to manage the site once we can login to php admin and go from there, but getting there is the issue.

I know I can download phpnuke and then ftp it up to a folder on my site but after that im clueless in what I need to do after that. any help is appreciated. If you want to help to design the website just let me know.

Thanks,

Starjax

I wasn't too clear as to whether you already have PHPNuke set up on an old site. You mentioned themes for it. If you have PHPNuke set up already, why not transfer it? Otherwise, you will have to do it the way ditto mentioned. It's a long and tedious process if you really want to customize the pages and you need to read the instructions because it will not tolerate sloppy code.

Please read you post before submitting them, and check you spelling. It is hard to give good advice when the question is not completely clear. :tazz:

Thanks Ditto. thats what I was looking for.

For those who didn't understand me the first time. We had our site hosted by hostitcheap.com. good place to get to know how to run a phpnuke site. But the emphasis on cheap. very little support and the site is really slow. At the moment we only use it for news posting and info. Stuff all handled by the main page. see http://teamv4v.com/ it will take 30-40 seconds to bring up.

The new site requires much more attention to detail. Everything has to be done by hand. No nifty scripts to setup phpnuke.

I'm not worried about porting anything over from the old site. With a much better host we will be able to do a lot more.

Thanks,
Starjax
