When I click on the phpMyAdmin button in UniServer the NZMotorhomeForum database is not listed.

Okay... So it sounds like you don't have the database set up. You need that.

You basically need to install phpBB on your machine. Go through that whole process, which will involve setting up a database user and creating databases and tables and such, and when you're done you can try the forum again. Most of the information you'll need to know (eg. username, password, database name) should be configured with the site's phpBB - maybe in a config file?

Databases are not set up in folders.

Did you find the configuration for the forum? It's probably a file, like config.php or config.inc or something like that. I think. That's the information that tells phpBB where the database is and how to connect to it.
You need to find that file and edit it to connect to your local database because whatever settings it has now will not work. The hostname needs to change (probably to localhost) but the username and password will be fine. Note the username, password, and database name.
Now you need to create the new database. Follow the instructions to install phpBB's database. Do it on your computer. Use the username, password, and database name from before.

And I'm back.

Did you set up the database on the same machine where PHP is running?
