2.4 Install on cpanel Server
Sep 24th, 2010 at 1:47am
Post Tools
The owner of my Web host server says I am free to install YaBB 2.4 either using old install in the Site Software YaBB 2.1 and run an update to 2.4, via Fantastico (if that is possible), a new install of 2.4 via FTP, or a fresh Site Software install of 2.4.

I take it from the instructions and threads here that using FTP is recommended?

I am waiting on his reply as to whether Perl may be run from anywhere or if I need to include the explicit /cgi-bin/yabb2/ path.

Any other recommendations or trouble-avoiding suggestions, please?

Thanks!

Follow directions in the Quick-Guide html, included in the installation zip.

Do you have an existing YaBB Forum?

If so -
What YaBB version is it on?

Also what hosting service?

One comment - if you are inexperienced in maintaining things yourself, it would be very advisable (IMO) to stick with the installation defaults - What did you think you might want the path to be?


Thanks -

Wink

I find your lack of faith disturbing.
