Hmmm, i have been looking around for difrent php forums
I host it all my self and are behind a router

What i know is that some forums give problems whit that. As when the host name is been given as localhost i can get on it, but others don't (DUH)
But i set it my IP, all can enter....but me not Confused

Now i am here to see if FUDforum is something i can use well Very Happy

The forum can handle running on an IP address, you just need to make sure your users can connect to the webserver and recieve data back from the webserver.

What you can do is either use a proxy that then bounces requests from you back to you or you could modify FUDForum/phpbb2 in such a way that requests that come from localhost are treated differently - e.g. $WWW_ROOT in /FUDForumData/include/GLOBALS.php is set to localhost for requests that come from yourself.

to get around the issue you mentioned you can make a modification to your hosts file if running microsoft windows:

Windows xp the hosts file is located at:
c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Windows 2000 the hosts file is located at:
c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Windows 9X the hosts file is located at:
c:\windows\hosts


Basically if you add an entry with either your domain name or ip address pointing to local host you will be able to see the forums at a later date.

For example:
127.0.0.1 www.myforums.com
127.0.0.1 195.44.32.123

Still Alan, you pointed out a possibility I didn't keep in mind. Thanks for bringing the hosts file back into my mind, it might be useful in the future. =3
