YaBB in text only mode after CPanel install

My host provides YaBB via CPanel - currently v2.3.1. Install failed - I figured out that was due to Cpanel defaulting to /yabb directory when in fact it appears as though Perl scripts must be in cgi-bin. So I worked around that and got the install done.

However, it's in a text only mode - no images and no style sheet is being applied to the fourm/ Take a look at http://va-usfa.com/cgi-bin/forum/YaBB.pl if it will help.

I'm ok with starting over and installing YaBB from scratch if y'all think that is a better route. If not, what's up with the lack of style?

Thanks

YaBB doesn't have a text only mode. What this most likely means is that the path settings to find the image directories probably isn't right, so it isn't loading the images.

Over the years, setting the paths has gotten easier and easier, but once in a while problems still creep up. Check your paths and make sure they are right ... alternately, if desired, PM me the admin password, and I'll check on them for you. But it's most likely a paths problem at this point.

It seems like the CPanel install at my host is just hosed. I did a clean manual install following the Quick Guide and everything is fine now.

Thanks

I find your lack of faith disturbing.
