            It doesnt have near the features or customizations as vbulletin... but from the other free boards Ive tried it does seem to be the best amoung the free... it certainly was easy to get up and running quickly.

            Keep your installation up to date
            A word of warning is in place. Phpbb is a very popular software, and security holes in it attract a huge attention among script kiddies. Basically what they do is run google searches for vulnerable installations and use automated scripts to hack your installation.

            Few tips that might help:

            - Keep your installation up to date

            - Disable safe mode, if it works for you

            - Add a robots.txt to disallow access to your forums

            Excellent work!
            I know that not many people like to offer feedback regardless of how useful the application is, so I figured I would drop a comment and let you know I really appreciate phpBB and think it is awesome!
