mmmm possible the Decoder.pl is corrupt or maybe Profile.pl try replacing those 2 files, using AscII transfer mode from your download installation zip.  The verify the CHMOD on these are 755 or higher (ALL pl files and the folders should be this CHMOD).

I am just trying to change the default admin password in the profile when logged in as admin.  (I can change other passwords of another user I setup, but I get this error when logged in as admin.)  I have not changed any other setting.  (This was the first thing I was doing after setup.)

  The original "admin" account should NEVER be deleted.

  Are you clearing all in the password field, before entering the New password ?  Do you have invalid info in some other field ?

I did get this fixed with the server company.

Now I am getting a new error after setup. 

./Sources/Decoder.pl did not return a true value at ./Sources/Profile.pl line 277.

I get this when edited a profile.  (I am trying to edit the admin password.)
  This only for the admin.  All others work fine.  (Is ok to delete the admin after adding another admin?)

A. Are you able to start the Setup.pl file at all?

B. If you are able to start Setup.pl, at what point does it 'crash'?

If you can't start Setup.pl at all,

One of two or three things is true:

1. The permissions in the cgi-bin/yabb2 folder and below are wrong.

2. The source file(s) is/are corrupt.

3. The server may not be set up properly.  What Perl version are they running?  And what's the webserver/version?

If you are able to start Setup.pl and it crashes when you go to the 'second screen';
The problem is likely that Paths.pl is not writeable.

Not all servers work with exactly the same permissions, and some have had 'security tightening' that cause scripts to fail.  Ask if your ISP is running mod_security.  You also could ask the for the server error log for your vhost (virtual server), it may give a more descriptive error.


Good Luck

The most likely reason is corrupt files.  This usually caused by uploading the files to the host server using an ftp program in "auto" mode.  ALL the folders and files under the yabb2 folder MUST be uploaded using an AscII Mode transfer.
   Files and folders under yabbfiles folder must use AscII  for text type files and ALL images must be uploaded using the Binary mode.
   Then folders and files must be CHMODed correctly.

Fresh Install Problem Internal Server Error

I have installed this on a fresh server ISP and keep getting

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

Please contact the server administrator 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.


I copied the files like the guide says I still can't get anything to go when I run the setup. 

I have deleted all the files and re-uploaded and still get this. 

Any help would be nice.
