Do you have a Premium account at Bravenet?
If not, then you are wasting your time.
PHP & MySQL are not avaiable unless you have a Premium account at Bravenet.

well if u download the phbb forums from their site, and then extract the zip file, it has a readme or something that tells u what to do, all u have to do iirc is to run this "setup" file that will do everything for u!

I think phpBB and vBulletin are both popular ones. I haven't really had experience with either, but would like to intergrate one with my website sometime.

I do not know if this is too obvious but they do have their own support boards

XMB Forum is by far my favorite forum. The look is a lot less chunky and a lot more customizable than PHPBB and a lot more modifications can be added.

vBulletin is not free.

Minerva is a free take off of phpBB, it's got a lot of neat features.

Try also simplemachines as known as smf forums. I have been working with it for some time and it is kind a usefull.
Hopefully in the past five years they found a solution!
