I followed the steps needed to update my Yabb forum but I have came up with this error from http://graffinc.com/yabb2/YaBB.pl,

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@graffinc.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


....where did I go wrong with this update?! I followed the steps one by one, but I'm novice with website building and this coding is out of my league. please help

No need to code ....

What has probably happened was you failed to insure ALL the files under the yabb2 folder were transferred (uploaded) using AscII mode or you forgot to set the correct shebang (path to Perl) in the pl files as noted in the installation guide.

See the YaBB Codex http://codex.yabbforum.com/YaBB.pl?num=1190688617

Your site states Apache Server ... your running Windows ???

honestly, I don't know... I'm using windows, I just host it off a site, I'm sorry if I mixed that up... I read the directions about the (path to perl), I dont even know what that is, and they were all listed as,
#!/usr/bin/perl --
and as described in the directions I assumed that was all that I didn't need to do anymore

and what is AscII mode?
I used my FTP to upload my files... was that wrong?

I'm sorry if these are basic silly questions but I've never had to do something like this

How did you install your forum to start with ?
Well .. lets guess your NOT hosting your site on a windows server.

See this post on the YaBB Codex, explaining FTP modes

Each FTP program is different in relationship to their memu structure ... but somewhere there is usually options to Transfer as Binary, AscII or Auto transfer mode.
   Using Auto Transfer with most FTP's "will" cause corrupt files, due to it not recognizing the many different file extentions in YaBB.  A file that requires AscII, being transfer as Binary WILL corrupt and vice a versa with Binary files.

ok, that makes sense and its helpful, for my YaBB update, which mode do I need to upload my files in?!
I appreciate your help so far

ALL the files under the yabb2 folder must be transferred in AscII mode
Under yabbfiles folder ALL images require Binary mode

All this info is readably available on the YaBB Codex or in The Quick Guide included in the YaBB software Forum downloads
