a) what dodmain are you talking of here now - does the NAS have to serve an additional domain, and oyu have set-up a virtual server for the forum?
The phpBB packet - was it unpacked ot the Web resp. Qweb folder, or is there a subdirectory with the phpBB code? The description is based on the probably wrong) assumption the distribution does not include a subfolder in the archive. Depends now on how you want to use it - with a virtual path (ie. http://yourname.mycloudnass.com/forum/
) direct in the main Web server root http://yourname.mycloudnass.com/
) or as a virtual server for a domain yoou have DNS hosted externally (ie. http://forum.yourdomain.com/
RIght, a bit more info to add, this is the first venture I have made into using the Qnap as any sort of web server. I registered my IP address against a free domain (.tk), so now when I type in my web address it goes to the "web server setup guide" with the green house, when I click on that I get to the Qnap login page. As far as I am aware I have not set-up a virtual server.
The phpBB was unpacked into my nas/web/phpbb3
If I put my the Qnap IP with the /phpbb3, I can get to the main board index view.
So just to recap what I am trying to do, is when somone types in my website address mywebsite.tk, I want it to go to the forum register board.
Please excuse me if I am talking rubbish or trying to achieve the impossible and thanks for the help
