    net-trend I luv this>>

    Now this is a good laugh;

    From Net-Trend Terms and Conditions

    "Banned Script(s):
    CGI based forums are NOT allowed on Net-Trend servers as they are known to be resource intensive in usage."

    You must be joking right?
    or don't you have a clue what your talking about?
    A well written perl forum will out perform any
    bloated PHP forum period.

    What's the problem with the TOS? I would agree with them.

    Seemingly, it's your turn to be "kidding".

    The majority of perl scripts are very poorly written and cause resource problems.

    Preference against using Perl written forums as being too resource intensive is a common complaint in webhosting.

    This often causes problems with YaBB - there are two version out there:

    a Perl-written YaBB SP
    a PHP-driven YaBB SE

    I'm not convinced a lot of hosts know the difference.

    The developers of YaBB SE have since dropped the project to recode it completely as SimpleMachines now, anyway.

    I can understand fully why providers don't allow CGI based Bulletin Boards - most don't. We don't, because compared to PHP Bulletin Boards, they are way too resource wasteful. Besifes, PHP boards have a lot more development on them nowadays and do a lot more.

    Both the perl and php versions of Yabb use a ton of resources.

    We also do not allow cgi based forums. Most do not or if you do you will soon find out the hard way like we did 2 years back.

    this is a joke, how the heck could a perl based YaBB
    forum that doesn't have a persistent sql db connection,
    that gets maybe 20 posts in a 24 hour period, draw down
    the resources on any server let alone a newer state of the art
    dual proc servers.

    Because forums usually gain more and more members as time goes on. They are banned from most hosts servers for being inefficient full stop. Use a PHP forum, its much better and at least most hosts will allow it.

    Hello, i am from the YaBB support community, i have informed the developers about this post and they should have comments to make soon, but i would like to inform you that newer versions of YaBB have been very intensly tested and have actually been found to run at a lower server load than phpBB and use less bandwidth (by more than half) than phpBB.

    It takes 0.3906 seconds for the YaBB 1 Gold SP2 (Beta6) software to generate a page with information from 15 different queries.


    Ok, i admit, YaBB used to be quite a server fecker but we are in the new generation of YaBB, and to prove it... About Web Services use it (about 8 times) on their website, to run support communities for Freeservers.com, BizHost.com etc (all their hosting brands)

    So instead of living in the past, why not actully have a look at the new software that the YaBB team are releasing because its better than you think.

    Thats all i have to say.

    Also wanted to say, funny you signed up just to post that. I have a deep suspicion it has to do with a deleted thread a few days ago.
