I have received the task of registering and creating a forum from scratch for my Ogame alliance.

I was wondering if anybody else ever tryied to create a forum from scratch. And if so, do someone have a list of good recommended forum sites?

Security is a major issue here and I want to be able to easily create private "hidden" forums from the "normal" users.

Any idea?

why not use Invision Board, like this forum?

Edit: Of course, it does cost money...

What about PHPBB (http://www.phpbb.com/) ? I made quite good experience with those Forums. they are (sort of) easy to maintain and to install ...

I second swiss' opinion.

phpBB is a great free forum. If you need more then a forum (web portal) then go for PHP NUKE, which includes phpbb as module.

To set up one of these you have to have basic unix/windows knowledge and some php. I can help you if you choose any of it.

Where are you planning to host it? (Has to support php and mysql or some other db.

if you need a host, just type 'Free (invision/php) board host' in google and something will come up!

Well, I have absolutly no coding knowledge whatsoever and it must be free too because I don't want to have to pay for it.

All I want is a basic forum which is secure enough to trust and easy to use.

I do realise that I have no idea of what I'm doing...

usually with these forums you can just sign up and the forum is created. then you can just use the admin panel to edit it. you can become a genius with the forum workings that way

http://invisionfree.com/ is your friend. If you want an invision board similar to this without the hassle of hosting or anything then this service is great. I use it for my forum (which is pretty dead :P) and its easy to manage etc.
