To install a phpBB template you should have a phpBB2 board system installed on your server. Download it from www.phpbb.com if you don’t have one. The installation process is quite simple. Decompress the phpBB archive to a local directory on your system and navigate to the “/docs/” folder the “readme.html” and the “install.html” files, these files will walk you through the basics on installing the forum software.
When you have a phpBB board system installed, unpack the template package. There will be a folder named “Forum_XXXX” (where XXXX – is a four digit number). This is a phpBB theme. Place the files in their own directory (“Forum_XXXX”) in the “styles” directory inside your phpBB directory. If your server is online somewhere, then you’ll first need to unpack to a directory, and then upload it to your server. Do not rename “Forum_XXXX” directory.
Go to your administration control panel.
Press “styles” tab, find a theme and click “install”:
