I am working on a website and I want to add forums. Does anyone know of any good tutorials on it? I've googled alot. I know the html, javascript, and some java if it's useful.

There are plenty of prebuilt forum systems. check out phpBB or vBulliten if you have the money. Both of these, and most other forum systems, require a database like MS SQL or MySQL. If you want to roll your own system, you'll need to know something like PHP or Perl (though I've heard of forums written in other languages) and know how to query a database.

There's PHP, if you want to build your own, but believe me - it takes time to code a full featured forum in PHP all by yourself. I suggest as the others, pre-built forums like phpBB or vBulletin.
