I'm real new to this and don't even know if I'm posting in the correct thread. I've installed (as much as I have been able to figure out) "Ultimate Bulletin Board UBB6 TRIAL" and when I try to go to the admin function in the initial page I get a pop up window with nothing on it. I get the same error when I just try to register. I think that I have something going on with perl, though the instructions that I have read say nothing about setting up perl. It is installed on a Dellhost NT OS.
Here is the url: www.youngsguns.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi
and you know the control panel url. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. I'm a full time student trying to get this figured out between classes. I'm extremely inexperience on this stuff and am getting frustrated. I'm seriously reconsidering whether or not a board is worth the trouble. Thanks in advance.
I did some more digging and tinkering. I tried uploading again and received this message: "Make sure these files exist, permissions are set properly, and paths are set correctly.

Don't know if the binary versus ASCII had anything to do with it.
