You need a webserver such as Apache, a database. Other then that you are stuck reading the install docs...

I think the task to host on your own computer can best be learned from the free phpbb hosts on the internet already.

They use phpbb v2.0xx software and setup accounts for each subdomain.

Try a few and you get the drift of the business.

Otherwise you have to pay for a domain name, and get an ISP to have T1 broadband, and use their computer to host a phpbb software.

If you have T1 PCI card, then you can have direct service from a telephone company. You have to have phpbb software to answer your telephone connection from your own computer. Which is pretty much what people used to do using Mustang BBS software.

I think the first investigation is cost free. Then you have burdens of paying monthly to your ISP. The last option is a few thousands of dollars paying to the telephone company, each year.

you can host a phpBB forum on a home computer. I know people that do it plus I have a couple on mine right now.....

All I have is a 3Mbps/768Kbps DSL connection....

For optimum database performance you need a fast processor and lots of RAM...
