How do I make a forum for my web site but I dont want one that you have to connect to another website I want my own one.

Could I just copy and paste the code in?

Thanks in advance

I would try this one for starters, your webhost will need to support PHP and mySQL (most do), set up is easy and you can download skins or make your own.

I would use SMF. They are more secure.
simplemachines.com or net...?

phpBB is really insecure. Use it at your own risk.

What's your site? Are you on a server that supports PHP? Do you have access to a mysql database?

" ...but I don't want one that you have to connect to another website I want my own one."

Why - having one hosted free for you absolves you of all the tedious things like installing, updating, etc, etc - and gives you a virtually instant useable board, with all the administrative and configuration facilities you could want.
