So first of all you'll need the MyBB Files, download them here - DOWNLOAD
Once you have those you'll need a hosting, I'll be using 000WebHost since this is a tutorial - 000WebHost


Step 1

Keep refreshing till the account is made, it only takes a few seconds.

Step 2

Once you have found that quickly make the database.
