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.

Re: can't find files to install
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.

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

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

it is not your fault that your host has outdated information the Quick-Guide has been part of the yabb download for a long time now i just hope your host is not like this with the rest of their hosting service what host are you with?.

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
