These are just the recommended path structures. If you are an advanced user, you may change the name of or even remove the /cgi-bin/yabb2/ (removing cgi-bin would require your host to allow Perl scripts to be run from any location).

   * cgi-bin/yabb2/
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Admin
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Boards
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Help/English/Admin
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Help/English/Gmod
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Help/English/Moderator
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Help/English/User
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Languages/English
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Members
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Messages
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Modules/Digest/Perl
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Modules/Time
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Modules/Upload/CGI
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Sources
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Templates/default
   * cgi-bin/yabb2/Variables

Note:  In the Path Settings the cgi-bin/yabb2 folder will be designated as "."  (without the quotes).

folders below will be setup as:  e.g


and so on .....


While your YaBB may function with just the files from the cgi-bin, it won't be very user friendly or attractive. This is where the files located in the public_html folder of the YaBB package come in. They provide you with all of the wonderful display elements, as well as a few JavaScript functions (such as the one-click BBC codes). Since these files do not require any special privileges to be run, you may place them in any web accessible directory on your server.

   * yabbfiles/
   * yabbfiles/Attachments
   * yabbfiles/avatars
   * yabbfiles/Buttons/English
   * yabbfiles/ModImages
   * yabbfiles/Smilies
   * yabbfiles/Templates/Admin/default
   * yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/default

The html files within the yabbfiles folders and below, usually require an Absolute Path Setting in YaBB on some Servers.
An Absolute Path is the directory from the servers root to the folder or file.  e.g.


An URL to the html DIR would look like this:
A DIR would look like this

the above are examples .. you MUST setup URL's and DIR's according to the folder structure of your Server.
