Ikonboard CGI scripts - help wanted
« on: November 08, 2001, 07:20:00 AM »
Hi all!

I've recently downloaded the message board CGI script from www.ikonboard.com,  and although my ISP, BT Internet won't let me upload it to my BT web space, I have managed to get it onto my space here at Lunarpages, my only problem is that my username and password to get into the admin control panel don't work for some annoying reason!

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to get around this problem or any suggestions for alternative message board scripts which are easier/more user friendly?

Help me Lunarpages forums, you're my only hope!

Howdy.  Is it not finding the user, or is it saying incorrect password?  Or, maybe that's a canned response for either.  I'll see if I can help you when get my hands on the script.  I'm going to (probably) install it on my site.

The link that you have given to your site is on the free server.  There is no php or cgi allowed on the free server.

If you wish to use any form of script you will need to upgrade to a paid account.  Hosting starts from $3.95USD per month and if you need a mysql data base it is an additional $2 per month.

I have edited this message cuz I was asked to.. so, if anyone needs a free service just go to a search engine and type what your looking for like free homepage or free scripts or cgi. You will be amazed when you look at the serch results. Remember if it is a free service dont expect much.


Cheers!
