this is easy, follow the steps bellow.

1. Extract the module to your site root
2. run this URL http://yourdomainname/db/build?flush=1

thats all, so now access your CMS back end to see the changes

yep did that thanks very much.

but it showed a white page with stuff like this ( i did the forum module)
Newsletter
Newsletter_SentRecipient
Newsletter_Recipient
NewsletterType
PageComment
Email_BounceRecord
Email_Blac......

but when i logged into the backend i didnt see any changes....because i wanted to create a forum but i saw no changes...could this because i need to install aditional modules to make this work?
