Message boards & Servers
« on: June 11, 2003, 04:05:42 AM »
Well,   Im Back.
I just came From accross canada, and Had lots of fun.
Now I have to get back to work, so I have a couple of questions about message boards and webservers.

I have to set up a message board with the following ideas in mind:

1) All accross there is lots of YWAM (youth with a mission) bases (23 to be exact), I want to give them each a  SINGLE thread that they can moderate.

2) This Message board is to be used as a  News page with
info on whats going on in YWAM Canada. So a Calender could be useful, but it is not nessasary.

3) I want a public  (Member signup ???) and a private (thread where every base leader can post, but noone else) thread going.

My questions are:

1> If anyone has experience with a message board that is quick and easy to learn and can do these thing, please let me know, where I can find it! ( I might have to call for help)

2> I need to get a Canadian Web server to put this on.
( since it is for YWAM canada, I need to have a Canadian server)

Thanks so much

FuZzY

The one I have been using is a php script called PHPBB, you can download it from www.phpbb.com.  Basically the webserver whether you run it or someone else runs it needs to have php and mysql support.  If those are installed then it is pretty easy to install PHPBB because it does most of the tedious work for you.  I think it is available for both windows and linux.  Hope this helps.
