It depends on how do you want these forums to be organized. If you want to build multiple forums on one core, and setup them individually yourself, you can create subdomains and tie them up using Apache DNS configuration, and use the same users table with separately named forum tables. If you want to built something when users create forums themselves - it is more difficult, but still possible....

also as setup_options.php for each directory.

i'm trying to set up multiple instances of the forum on a single virtual host using the code in a single directory, as discussed in this forum.

i've used the url rewrite, and added a script in index.php and admin.php to determine the directory of the referring url. i've managed to get the bb to display, but the web server is looking for bb_default_style.css in the subdirectory: not in the CORE_ENGINE directory. in fact, it's doing this for anything in the directories img/ lang/ and templates/. this is inhibiting the functions.

for example, i can see a forum, but i can't post to us - the web server reports an error looking for templates/form.js

so there seems to be more to the forumfarm than the code that's been included. any advice?

I think in that case you may need to introduce some kind of variable {$main_url_core} for example. Then in every template change http://www.minibb.com/forums to {$main_url_core}.

$pathToFiles variable should also be the generic for all forums in that case.
