Why use the Bitnami phpBB Stack?

Bitnami makes it easy to run phpBB in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami phpBB Stack is:

  • Up-to-date

    We track every release of phpBB and update our stack shortly after it's released.

  • Secure

    If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of phpBB as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.

  • Consistent

    With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying phpBB or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.

With the Bitnami phpBB Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

  1. Bitnami phpBB 5

    Very good!

    by adam h on

    I am building a forum based site and after trying lots of the competition, i have gone with this one. Easy to customize especially when using firebug. I like the feel of it and there are some nice free extensions/mods out there which work well.

    I have been really impressed with this stack. I was up and running in no time. Both bitnami and phpbb deserve credit for their software both individually and when working together like this.

    Many years of experience...

    by Brent Foxwell on

    I've used several packages, but I continually come back to phpbb. It's not the best, it's just one of the easiest to customize. It needs work, but it is simple to reconfigure for your own purposes.
