Layperson here and I would like to build a UBB forum. What do I need to get started? Is a dedicated server in my home necessary or can I have a cloud based server? Is it as simple as purchasing UBB Licenses and a professional install to get started? TIA....

Well, you'll need a domain name and web hosting (I have a short list of web hosts here); if your site is small, especially if it is new, you DO NOT NEED a dedicated server or VPS, shared hosting or Business Shared Hosting should be fine until said time your web host comes to you about server resources.

Your host will need to support PHP 5.6 (UBB.threads is not currently compatible with PHP7) and should pass all of the tests in my System Requirements Test.

From there you need a license to UBB.threads and then you'll either install it yourself, hire UBBSystems (the vendor) to install it, or hire a 3rd party developer to install it.

I am a Web Development Contractor, I do not work for UBBCentral. I have provided free User to User Support since the beginning of these support forums.
