PHPbb Search Engine Optimization

PHPbb is the most popular forum system on the internet. It is an open source and also free of licensing charges. Having a forum on your website allows users to communicate amongst each other. It is a tool that allows you to grow a large community around your website.

 While install a PHPbb forum on your website is easy, its default configuration is not Search Engine Friendly. To configure PHPbb to become search engine friendly you will need to install the following module as well.

I have tested this module on PHPbb version 3.0.6 and 3.0.4

Once you have downloaded this package, you will need to unzip it to a certain location. Once done. You will need to copy all the files from the root folder from this package to the root location of your PHPbb system.

Next you will need to copy the files from the  contrib/phpBB_3.0.6_modified_files/  to the root location of your PHPbb system too.

After you are done with these two steps, you will need to navigate to http://your_phpbb_site/phpbb_seo/phpbb_seo_install.php to install your module. Once that is done you can login to your control panel to configure your PHPbb seo options.

Once that has been configured. You will need to copy the .htaccess content to the .htaccess file in your root location

Thereafter you will need to synchronize your URLS by going to the following location. http://your_phpbb_site/phpbb_seo/sync_url.php

With that you have successfully SEO all the links and URLs  on your PHPbb.
