First of all you need Apache Server, PHP, MySQL and a Forum Script i.e. phpBB or Invision or vBulletin.

Download phpDev here
and you get a bundle of all the things above.

Extract & install php dev. start the apache server, its 90% done.

upload the forum script to X:/phpdev/www/public
(x is your drive, usually C: )

now to access the forum through internet you will not know your IP address thru ipconfig command..

go to

What Is My IP? See My IP Address and My IP Location

See what’s your IP address.

now go to : http://your ip address/public/your forum directory/install.php

That’s it!
