MyBB Installation Tutorial
So today we are going to be doing a full MyBB installation.
The version we will be installing is MyBB 1.6.15.
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

Sign up at 000WebHost and then click to add a new website and do as I have done below.

Then click to create the account.
Keep refreshing till the account is made, it only takes a few seconds.

Step 2

So now you have the MyBB files and now you have hosting so lets jump forward and locate MySQL
Once you have found that quickly make the database.
