How tired it is of updating! So don't modify your own source code easily!

5 Minute Forum

5 Minute Forum is a simple forum written with PHP.

This document is still improving. When I learned more about English, I'll update this document again.

Help! I don't understand English!

This resource code based a Chinese document : project/introduction.html. If you really don't understand English (Or I wrote too many wrongs) , please read this document.

Why will I program this forum

Here are the reasons of why I program this fourm:

  • To show you how excellent I am. (用中文说就是装X)
  • To help you with the structure of a forum software.
  • To help you build a forum.
  • To record as a video and publish to Bilibili.
  • To pratiece myself.
  • To...

Migrate from old version

Originally I don't want to open this category because no one who I found is using my forum. But after a deep thinking, I decieded to write here.

Please write a script yourself to realize this feature, or get help from me with migration.


  • Use SQLite for database. (Used JSON in initial version)
  • Post and comment.
  • Like and reply to a comment.
  • VIP users.
  • Native PHP.


  1. Download/Clone this repository.
  2. Move files to the path of you want to install.
  3. Access http://name.domain/path/setup.php. (setup.php)
  4. Fill basic information and click "Setup" button.

Don't use in production

I've told you this forum is to show how excellent I am. There are lots of found bugs at this forum:

  • Doesn't support lots users access at same time.
  • No administration console, so you must modify database to manage the forum.
  • Doesn't support tags and categories, you can't category posts.
  • Doesn't support multi-pages, if too many posts and replies existed, browser maybe crash. (No matter how your computer's performance amazing)
  • No XSS protection, users will attack the forum by evil code.(e.g. steal user cookies with AJAX.)

You can improve this forum if you can.
