phpBB 3.0.9 on OpenShift
This git repository helps you get up and running quickly w/ a phpBB installation on OpenShift. The backend database is MySQL and the database name is the same as your application name (using $_ENV['OPENSHIFT_APP_NAME']). You can name your application whatever you want. However, the name of the database will always match the application so you might have to update .openshift/action_hooks/build.

Then push the repo upstream
That's it, you can now checkout your application at: http://phpbb-$yournamespace.rhcloud.com
