You need forum software

  1. BBPresss
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/bbpress/

It can be installed at cPanel based hosting.

Well, that can be made. It’s used by popular GeneratePress community also.

Honestly, I don’t know much about it.

If you need something advanced, I would recommend

  • Get a Cloud server (With minimum 2 GB RAM)
  • Try Discourse

I can help with this.

Discourse can’t install by cpanel. It has separate installation procedure.
If you use DO, then there is one click discourse installation function.
Also discourse required minimum 20$ plan on DO, to perform well.

There are two other ways to get free cloud server, you may like to try.

  • AWS EC2 (Requires Debit/Credit card)
  • Google Cloud (Requires Credit card)

I have personally used Wpforo for my forum 1 year ago, my experience was quite good.

I will highly recommend WPForo if you don’t have SSH access in your Cpanel hosting.

And you don’t have to play with codes as well.
