phpBB is a free flat-forum bulletin board software solution that can be used
to stay in touch with a group of people or can power your entire website. It
is licensed under the GPLv2 and written in PHP.


This charm is intended to deploy and configure phpBB, an Open Source bulletin
board software developed on PHP. It will only work if it is related to the mysql
charm, which will act as the database.


In order to deploy and configure the charm, first deploy the MySQL charm:

juju deploy mysql

Then, deploy phpBB:

juju deploy phpbb

After that, add a relation between both charms:

juju add-relation mysql phpbb

Finally, expose phpBB

juju expose phpbb

After that, you should be able to go to http://ip-address/phpbb and start using
it. The default username and password are 'admin' (without quotes).


This charm has only two configuration options:

softsource: This is the place where the software will be installed from.
Acceptable values for this option are 'repo' and 'source'. 'repo' will install
the software from the Ubuntu repositories, whilst 'source' will download the
package from phpBB's website and install it. The default value for this option
is 'repo'.

version: If using 'source' as a software source, this option will set the
version of phpBB which should be downloaded from phpBB's website. The current
version at the time of writing is 3.0.12, which is set as the default.
