   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 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.
