    I think part of the confusion people are having in attempting to answer your question is that they do not know if you have your own physical server in your own possession that you are in control of or if you are referring to a web site you have hosted through a hosting party.

    If you are using a third party hosting party to host your web site and it is on a Linux server of theirs, odds favor them having cpanel available to you. Cpanel is the most frequently used control panel by web hosting providers to allow their customers, such as you, to have control over their hosted web space.

    If you are using your own server that you are in possession of, I seriously doubt that you would have Cpanel. From what I can tell on the offical Cpanel web site found at http://www.cpanel.net/index.cgi there is no free version of the product. It is something that is purchased and I doubt you would want to purchase it since it is geared for hosting providers to permit their customers to control their hosting accounts.

    I would agree with the previous poster in that you could just download phpbb forum software and install it on your web site. You can do this in either case, having your own web server or using a hosting provider. If you wish to evaluate other forum software you can do a search on google for the keywords Open Source Forum software which should provide you with a number of packages you can look at.

    Hope this helps,
    Ira
