ERP, some advice please.
« on: February 1, 2002, 09:38:58 pm »
alright ERP,
could I quiz you a bit?
As you know I'm struggling on with the 'shrine, writing everything for it, running it, designing it, doing everything for it, it's getting quite difficult, what with my ASs, wanting to write for other sites, eat and sleep!

Anyway, one area I'd like to improve is the forum. It's not bad but it's free, which means, ADVERTS! Bloody hundreads of them, plus loads of bugs and faults.

I've been thinking about using YaBB. If I'm right
it's free, the troube is I'm not sure I could handle it. It says you need HTML knowledge (fine) and Pearl (not fine).

I just wanted to know how easy it is to set up, run, customize etc.
Also I'm going to need quite a bit of hosting space yeah??

sorry to bug you,
any advice welcome.

CHEERS.
Curly_Tom.

its fairly easy, if you decide to use it ill give you any help you need, you dont need all that much space, think this is using about 15mb with all the posts etc, its just the bandwidth that can be a pain if you get loads of visitors, yabb isnt really the best solution being flat file you would be best off with yabbse http://www.yabb.info if you can get a server with php and mysql. Anyway just off out now...

later

Well I thought it did. Does this mean it probably doesn't?

I'm using more bravenet free hosting, you can upload both javascript and HTML files, so does that mean you can't upload pearl?  :-/

bollocks.
I'll have a look for somethung else. It's getting more and more difficult to do all this for free!

anyway, when I sort some decent hosting, basicallty what do I do. Upload all the files and then customize the template file to how I want it yeah?

yep I think I've changed the setting.pl file alright, I've just found some pretty decent hosting which supports CGI so I think I'm sorted.
cheers for the help mate.  :)
