Note: Copy the admin username and password on a notepad because you will need these login details to access the admin area of your MyBB Forum.


10. Enter the following details under the Choose Language field:
  • Select Language: The default language of the forum is English.

11. Advanced Options: Leave this as it is unless you want to change the database name or take an automated backup. Please note that taking frequent backups may take a lot of disk space.
Finally, scroll down to the end of the page and click on the Install button.
