Before uploading YaBB software to any server .... be sure you have edited YaBB.pl, AdminIndex.pl, Setup.pl in the yabb2 folder,  also Admin/ModuleChecker.pl and Sources/SpellChecker.pl for the proper Path to Perl.
Generally, the default is correct on most Linux/*nix systems ( On a Linux host, the path is usually #!/usr/bin/perl),
    but Perl can be installed in different locations. For example #!/usr/local/bin/perl --
   or on a Windows or WinNT host, your Perl path should probably be set to #!C:/Perl/Bin/Perl.exe.
   Check with your host or check your server for the proper path and change the file path accordingly in each of the files.

Note: the  "--" (without the quotes) following the shebang is needed on some servers
