The problem is that, to start the process I should be able to enter the Forum Settings, which is what the guidelines said I should do in the first place, but now I can't, so I don't know what to do. Do I need to install my forum from scratch? And, if that's the case, which files should I back up?

What's the shebang? Could this be a possible solution?

Verify the path to Perl in the shebang (#!/usr/bin/perl --) for your
         specific server in the following files of this package and change it
         if nessesary:
         YaBB_2_5-upgrade/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl
         YaBB_2_5-upgrade/cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl
         YaBB_2_5-upgrade/cgi-bin/yabb2/Admin/ModuleChecker.pl

I wouldn't have thought your forum would have worked at all if that was the problem, but it quite possibly could be... Do you still have a copy of your 'old working' YaBB.pl? If you have, what's the first line?

I did a quick search on the shebang and it's allright, I think I'll have to reinstall the whole forum :S

Yeah, I think that will be the best solution I'm afraid.

I always to do fresh install myself and move the relevant files across, so if you want to do that, take a look at this in the YaBB Codex:

http://www.yabbforum.com/codex/YaBB.pl?num=1190674425

That actually describes how to move to a new server, but it's exactly the same thing for moving your files to a fresh install on the same server...

No problem. I'm just sorry we didn't get the problems sorted out for you on your first try.

Obviously feel free to ask if you have further problems with this go...
