Path to Perl

Before uploading YaBB software to any server .... be sure you have edited YaBB.pl, AdminIndex.pl, Setup.pl in the yabb2 folder for the proper Path to Perl also Admin/ModuleChecker.pl and Sources/SpellChecker.pl if installing Y2.3.x and above.
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 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.

example:
Code (Perl)
Select All
#!/usr/bin/perl --

# Setup.pl                                                                    #
###############################################################################
# YaBB: Yet another Bulletin Board                                            #
# Open-Source Community Software for Webmasters                               #
