I have a website on WinHost.com, I was looking for a good asp.net forum software for long time. When YetAnotherForum v1.9.6 RC1 released, I was very happy and quickly installed it on remote server. Followings are easy steps.

1、From http://yafnet.codeplex.com/  download YetAnotherForum YAF-v1.9.6-RC1-BIN.zip, unzip it and read ReadMe.htm included carefully.
2、From unziped folders, find folder "YetAnotherForum.NET" and ftp to www.my-domain.net  root directory and rename it to "Forum".
3、Inside WinHost Control Panel, Create Application starting point for the "Forum" folder.
(1).So I don't need to ftp "YetAnotherForum.Net\bin" folder's files to root\bin, (different from ReadMe.htm).
(2).and I don't need to change app.config file, Uncomment/add key with name "YAF.AppRoot" and value "/forum/".(different from ReadMe.htm).
4、Copy the file "recommended-NET-web.config" to same "Forum" folder and rename it to web.config.
5、Change ConnectionString in db.config file.
6、Configure mail.config file.
7、(Copy from ReadMe.htm)Generate a Machine Key for your installation.
Open the file web.config and visit the a site that allows generation of a unique machine key for your forum. Such as this site: AspNet Resources Machine Key Generator. Copy and paste the generated machine key to your web.config in the section.
8、Backup my database on Server (use same database for Yaf forum).
9、Open page: http://www.My-Domain.net/forum/install/ .
there was a little problem from my original website application, then I go to web.config and change Mode <customErrors mode="Off">, and display the error, and easy fixed it.
10. then I follow the Yaf forum installation guide easily to successfully finish.

That was what I did to install yaf forum on remote server.

Yaf Forum is wonderful beautiful forum software, thank you developers very very much.
