Default Trying to find a Perl or YaBB person

A friend of mine operates a site with a discussion board powered by an older version of YaBB. His former webmaster has disappeared, and my friend needs to upgrade to the latest version of YaBB, because the current system appears to be maxed out. My friend is trying to find someone to do this task for him.

The site is hosted on a Unix system, and currently is using YaBB 1.3.1.

If you believe you would be interested, or know someone who would be interested, please let me know, and I'll forward the information. You're welcome to send a private message or use the "send by email" link from my profile. ...thanks!

Well - I now know that YaBB2 is a "fiddly" thing to install, but I did it in a subdomain on a new dedicated server.

Note that it does not use an SQL server - but saves messages in the website tree.

FWIW, YABB split into two lines of development. One is still called YABB, and from what I understand, it still has problems with large loads. The other one was renamed Simple Machines Forum. It is written in PHP. And I know they provide an install service if you pay to be a charter member. But you would have to make sure this covers a YABB to SMF upgrade.

Just a thought.

Thanks, Andrew. I think my friend has found someone to deal with the matter, and I'm sure that person is learning all about this. :-) ...cheers!
