Back about 5-6 years ago, I put up a bulletin board for myself and some fellow gamers on our server's website. Recently, I finally updated the red hat 5.2 box to a current version. I came here, and as I recall, there was a free non-commercial use board at the time. I can no longer find this. Does this exist anywhere still? If not, is there any easy way to pull the scripts off my old server and put them on the new one? I know I had to do some hacking because of path errors for Perl, and I no longer have the original tar ball / distribution.

The freeware version (discontinued over four years ago) was not intended to be used as a long-term installation - it was meant to make sure that the real thing could be installed.

It's out of date, buggy, and has a number of known security issues. I would not advise continuing to use it, no less intentionally putting it back up.
