It is extremely easy to install FUDforum on any Windows or Linux PC. This quick installation procedure can be followed to get FUDforum up-and-running for testing or development purposes.

1. Install Apache, MySQL and PHP on your system. If it's not already installed, we recommend XAMPP (just the basic package) or BitNami's LAMPstack. Both provide a unified installation with all the required components that you can simply download, extract and start.

2. Create a database for FUDforum by navigating to http://127.0.0.1/ (may be on a different port, like :8080), click on "phpMyAdmin", and "Databases". Enter your database name (say, fuddb) and click "Create".

3. Download and extract FUDform's installer and put it in the 'htdocs' directory (c:\xampp\htdocs or /opt/lamp/htdocs).

5. Start the installation wizard by navigating to http://127.0.0.1/FUDforum2/install.php

6. Select the installation directories (or just accept the defaults) and click "Next". Enter database details (user=root; DBname=fuddb; DBPassword if required or leave empty; leave the rest empty) and click "Next" until FUDforum is completely installed.

7. Stop the clock and let us know how long it took you to get it running.

Enjoy!
