Thanks for everyone's help and hope I didn't waste anyone's time.

Never a waste of time. We all have to start somewhere. I still find myself calling out to someone for help.

Glad you got it sorted. Smiley

Next, I changed the file perms to "777" (yeah I know, a bad thing).

on a NOTE: you should not have to make files "777" on Linux/Unix for YaBB to work. it shows incorrect server setup maybe the ftp username and password are not that of the root admin for the server you may want to as Dandello "check with your host to see what's going on with that."

and will also explain why it is bad.
If you are on a shared server that is not chrooted on ftp or ssh login then with ftp or if they upload a file manager to ther site users will be able to navigate throughout your directories.  If you have your directory chmodded to 777 but its parent to 770 then they will not be able to do this as they will not be able to reach the parent unless all access server side misconfigured then you will be like a bank with a help yourself day.
also if your host has a Public ftp directories on a incorrect server setup same as above but leaves you open to a more malicious access.
can i ask who your host is and if you have shell access.

Solved the second issue with the subject line  Grin

In the post section of the Forum Preferences it says:

Maximum Allowed Characters in Post Subject
(0 = default(50) / min 10 / max 255)


I had it set to 0. While the board section is able to interpret 0 as the default for 50 characters, the PM routine does not. When I changed the character setting to another number, the PM section allowed the number of characters as set in the admin field.

In the next iteration of YaBB, the designers probably will want add a note to set it to a number instead of '0' if you are activating the PM module.

Thanks for everyone's help and hope I didn't waste anyone's time.

I've reported this:
