New to SQL Database and all that stuff, but I know a little about programming, and I have a free Forums right now.
1. When you are buying the hosting service from someone other than IPB, is there certain things I should be looking for? I know I seen in another post, that you should have php 5 or something and some other things.
2. If I buy the web hosting from someone other than IPB, I could install joomla on it and connect the IPB forums will it correct? With doing this would I be able to link certain things like articles to the homepage? Sorta like a recent topics.
3. I know very little of mySQL Database, and FTP and things like such? Is there any good tutorials that IPB offers? and is it a big part of the IPB forums system?
4. If you are a beginner, how easy are the admin tools to adjust too? I tried the Demo and everything just seems a lot of things I don't know about.
5. How easy is it to install Templates, and edit them? Also how easy is it to install add-ons?
Thanks for the information, a little new to this, and just want to start off with a lot of information.
