Simple Machines Forum — SMF in short — is a free, professional grade software package that allows you to set up your own online community within minutes.
Its powerful custom made template engine puts you in full control of the layout of your message board and with our unique SSI – or Server Side Includes – function you can let your forum and your website interact with each other.
The fee-based forum system v Bulletin from the Californian company, v Bulletin Solutions, is one of the most successful software solutions in the community sector.
The powerful forum software is currently available in its 5 version and is primarily aimed at demanding users who want to create professional community projects.
SMF’s Admin section has a built-in database backup function. It does work in some cases, but not in others, so it should not be used, unless you have no other way to acquire the backup of the database.
To restore your backed-up database, you do exactly the same as to back up, except that instead of clicking “Export”, you click “Import”.
If you operate your forum with v Bulletin, you benefit from a trusted software with an enormous range of functions including messengers, user groups, surveys, and blog functions.
The robust software architecture is designed for flexibility and performance.
Congratulations, the installation process is complete! Now you can see your newly installed forum and begin to use it. This is your newly installed forum: It is essential to back up your forum. Select File / Save As, select Compuserve Gif, rename the button to the name of the file it is meant to replace in your theme's images/english folder. Usually this is done with a line in .htaccess, something like ' Add Handler application/x-httpd-php5 .html', but ask your ISP about the exact syntax for your server.
