phpBB is an easy to use, easy to manage Bulletin Board App that gives developers yet another Powerful Tool to use. Keep up the good work Bitnami !!!
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.
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.
