phpBB vs. YaBBS




I just installed phpBB for my website then discovered YaBBS. YaBBS strikes me as more visual, nicer-looking BBS with lots of mods, whereas I didn’t find as many for phpBB (couldn’t find a user-editable events calendar, for example). Anyone with experience with both BB software care to add an opinion? Does YaBBS work on Dreamhost? Thanks in advance.


After a quick look at the instructions, everything looked ok except the chmod requirements. Since it’s a perl script, Honcho Michael will help get it working.
Promos: MaxTOR: Save [color=#CC0000]Maximum[/color] TOR: Save Maximum and [color=#00CC00]give $1 to TOR[/color]


the instructions seem a little convoluted, but all should work just fine on DH. There’s nothing at all odd about the chmod settings, and is something you can easily do for your self.
