I haven't seen the original posting, so I'm commenting on this comment
(so to speak)
I run phpBB 2.0.6 with PostgreSQL with no probs at all. I just downloaded
the package from www.phpbb.com and followed the instructions. It was one
of the easist installations I can remember for a long time!
Downloading CVS/ALPHA has always struck me as living dangerously!
And I note that 2.0.6 is the current release.
