have you already googled for 'free forum' Fuccaro?
I have a web host. How do I make a forum (nothing CAD related)? Each member should have a personal username/password and the administrator must have full rights: blocking members, delete posts and so on. Like in this forum.
-Only free solutions please-
It's nice to be nice, but sometimes is nicer to be evil!.
Tip: Please do not PM or email me with CAD questions - use the forums, you'll get an answer sooner.
It depends how big you think the community might get. A very good starting place would be phpBB, the free software that this forum began with. Version 2 looks really good with lots of features. For something more modest, you might look at minibb, a basic but powerful board and free.
You don't really need to know much about php/MySQL to use such software - just follow the install instructions and you should be good to go. If you need help, let me know.

I will second the PHPBB & MySQL referals. Even I could set them up in under a day. -David
