Hi There and Welcome to SMF,
Unfortunately your post isn't too clear. Are you looking to upgrade your forum or actually install it initially?

Colin Thank you very much for the welcome Well I think I got it.

I will correct my question here is that I bought the domain and web hosting

but I would like to make SMF 2.0 Installations and not how to explain

that I do devo because they know where to get started thanks for coming.

To change your system from PHPBB to SMF 2 you need to use converter :;software=phpbb

To learn more about converters please read wiki page :

Welcome to SMF


If your native language is not English, perhaps you could explain your situation better in one of the language-specific support boards: . If you want to carry on in English...

We cannot understand what you are asking to do. Is it

  • You have a brand new, empty site and you wish to install SMF 2.0, or
  • You have a website with phpBB forum installed, and you wish to convert it to SMF 2.0? (preserving the existing membership and posts)

For 1., see . For 2., see;software=phpbb.

We do NOT install SMF software for people. This site provides SMF as a ready-to-install package, but we do not install it for others. If you are on a "free SMF" site, such as smfnew, you need to talk to them. We are not their support group! If you are on a free or commercial site host, see if they have a software installation facility in their Control Panel, such as Fantastico or Softaculous. Since you seem to know nothing about running a website, that may be the best solution for you. Select SMF 2.0.2, which is the latest and greatest version.
