We need more information about your webserver's setup. If I were to transfer the a phpbb forum from a local server, I would do the following: 1. Install phpbb on the web server. 2. Upload the necessary files (custom templates, pictures, etc.) from the local server to the web server. 3. Export the database from the local server. 4. Drop all database entries from the web server. 5. Import the database from step 3. 6. Perform an upgrade of the phpbb installation. There might be better and easier steps but this is how I do most of the migrations with different CMS's: WordPRess, Modx, etc.
