Installation

Hello all... it's been years since I was around here. Anyhow, I wanted to use Yabb again for my forums but on another website address. Back when I first found this software, the wonderful support here helped me set it up. I'm on I believe a Unix system but I have to be quite honest, I am not that well trained on FTP and script stuff other then HTML and a tiny bit of PHP. So I come here to ask the wonderful team here if they might help me install yabb again on another website??

Thanks!
Missy

Thank you very much for the video... it did tell me what I had to do in order to get to the set up but after I did everything up to the setup page (autofill and all), I just go onto a 500 error page Sad Any ideas?

Remember I'm trying to put this behind a password protected folder... would this be an issue?? I have checked, I use godaddy hosting BTW on a UNIX system and they have shown me the file that says I can use the PERL script any where on my host as long as it was 2.0 which I have as well.

Any advice would be greatly welcomed! I get to the setup page but can't get any farther... this is where I become quite confused.

  Yes is could .. the folders (directories) used in a YaBB install MUST be CHMOD to at least 755. (Read/Write/Run) in order for the files to work as they should.
  These permissions do NOT invalidate the proper security needed for a properly run website.
Note: A 500 ISE (Internal Server Error) can and could also be caused by corrupt files ... uploading YaBB files from a personal pc to the internet website MUST be proper, ALL files under the yabb2 folder MUST be uploaded in an AscII transfer Mode.

Just a thought but do the install before passwording the directory(folder) Smiley
