release-2.0.23.zip

download it, unzip it.
create a database on your hosting account. if you do not have mysql available as opposed to mysqli, then you may need to do the
search here for how to solve that problem.

access your ftp to your hosting account,
upload the phpBB folder to the server,
follow the install instructions.
you are done.

I dont remember for sure if phpbb2 correctly sets the permissions so,
after install all folders should be chmod to 775 and all files should be 644



2 Does this copy contain any of the security updates and upgrades done here on this site if not can you please point me to them ?
no idea about any updates etc. to this site. however, there is a security update available here: http://dserver.macgui.com/phpBB-2.0.24-codechanges.zip
for the 2.0.23 version. it would be best to install easymod first then use it to install that update.
easymod can be found here:
https://phpbbace.com/support/phpbb2/easymod0.4.0.zip

here is an article I wrote a long time ago about how to use easymod. some of the links may not be valid any longer.

hope this helps.

I don't see a password needed but you do have to be logged in as admin.
