I installed the free version of “DiscusWare” and had if working fine. It took a long time to get it set up, copying files and changing the files attributes to “777”. After spending hours getting it all set up, creating forums, sub-forums, etc. I lean you have to pay $150 to get a version that allows new users to register at your site!! So all that time was for nothing.
So next I tried “YaBB 2” I could never get any of the .pl files to open. I tried everything… Plus I don’t understand the “Perl” part of it…? Also I read on here that YaBB was bad for the site over all so I don’t want to use it if that is true.
Can anyone recommend a FREE message board package that will work here on DreamHost that can have basic message board abilities? I would love it to be able to have avatars, link pics with the commands, and of course allow people to register unlike the free version of “DiscusWare”. Maybe I can still use YaBB 2? But how do you get it so you can open the .pl files?
