For Apache Servers on Windows:

The Very First thing you should do is Edit the files in cgi-bin\yabb2, YaBB.pl, AdminIndex.pl and Setup.pl to set the correct Path to Perl (shebang) for your Host Server your going to be installing the Forum to. (This VERY Important and Must be Correct).

Note:  If installing Y2.3.x you also must edit Admin/ModuleChecker.pl and ./Sources/SpellChecker.pl for Path to Perl.

Using a FTP program to upload the YaBB Forum folders and files, transfer must be set to an ASCII Mode to upload ALL the folders and files under the cgi-bin folder.  ALL the folders under yabbfiles folder Must be transferred in ASCII Mode also, EXCEPT any image files (Smilies/Buttons/Logos) which have an extension of jpg, gif or png, and .swf files, which MUST be transferred as Binary.


Edited:
Edited to include requirement for binary transfer of .swf files in version 2.2
