Alright as you can see on every forum base board it has a install.php file that makes you inter your database name and username.

My question is:How Does This work like making your own databases and it automatically adds columns and rows to the database in your phpmyadmin area?


i been looking at all forum based install files and i dont want to make all the columns manually in phpmyadmin :( anyone got some infomation im missing?

It simply executes a series of SQL statements, which obviously include CREATE TABLE and some INSERTs.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
