Although this does point out the need to get somebody working on getting the Codex squared away. I know it's on JonB's to-do list.  Wink

Hopefully your install will go smoothly and you'll end up running a great forum.  Smiley

Wow.  Guess I should have looked at all that first.  Feeling stupid, have to justify that my host directed me to the install instructions I was using.  Still feeling stupid... Smiley

Settings.pl is created during the set up process. It's not in the zip.

If setting up a new forum, use the instructions found in the Quick-Guide that should be part of the zip file. Those are the most current instructions.

can't find files to install

I'm totally new at this.  Trying to install using the instructions on the yabbforum:
/codex/YaBB.pl?num=1190671650  (I'm not allowed to post the url yet)
At the end of paragraph 9, I am instructed to "go into the 'Variables' folder/directory and change the permissions of the file 'Settings.pl' to 777" 

There is no file 'Settings.pl' in the Variables folder or any other.  I downloaded the zip file again, but no luck.  Looking at other topics, it looks like maybe this is created later?  Any help is appreciated.
