-> eg. first I copied everything to a new location, updated pathes and set permissions but still I get 500-error. Then I tried the other way - to install forum again (fresh copy) and possibly add the data afterwards. But this time the setup stops and I get the error mentioned in my first post.  

unfortunately this is the only perl web on this server and so I can't get much assistance from server administrator. nevertheless the test script is working.

ok can you email me your url and ftp login info and I will see if I can work out what is going on for you.

are you trying to move a forum and update it at the same time or is this a new forum setup?

also YaBB is now at YaBB 2.5.2 you can download it here
http://sourceforge.net/code-snapshots/svn/y/ya/yabb/svn/yabb-svn-1194-branches-2...
left click on the link or right click and save as you will also need a unzip utility like 7zip find download here http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

if this don't help post back and I will see what I can do for you.

setup fails

Hello,

I try to install YABB (2.3.1) on a new server but unfortunately I can't finish the setup - after setting of paths I always get errror message that the following URL can't be reached. The paths are saved correctly but setup stops.

.... /Setup.pl?action=setup2

Any ideas what's wrong?

Thanks
