Welcome to the UBB.classic Control Panel!

In order to use your UBB, you must provide the following information. Your UBB will not operate if you do not provide the correct information below!

Absolute Directory Paths
Absolute paths reflect the physical locations of directories on a server. They are the complete locations, not the locations from the web root, but from the server root. Absolute paths on Win32/NT servers are displayed differently than on UNIX systems. For instance, note the following samples for UNIX and NT:

For UNIX servers:     /usr/home/yourdomain/www/cgi-bin
For Win32/NT servers:     C:/home/yourdomain/cgi-bin

Note: the paths listed above are examples, not your actual paths.

If you are installing on Win32/NT, be sure to use the format above for your absolute paths (note the forward slashes, rather than backward slashes).

The UBB will attempt to provide complete or partial absolute paths for you. These paths may not be accurate or complete, but they will give you a headstart. All absolute path fields MUST be provided for your UBB to run.

Need help with absolute paths? You can check your system's environmental variables.

Absolute Path for:
UBB CGI Directory
Absolute Path for:
UBB Graphics (NonCGI) Directory
Absolute Path for:
Members Directory

For maximum security, you can place this directory anywhere on your web server. We recommend that you place it so that it is not accessible from the web.

Absolute Path for:
Variable Files
You should use the same absolute path that you used for your CGI directory above. If for some reason you cannot write to files in your CGI directory, however, you should place these files (all files in the variables directory of the distribution zip) in a separate directory where they can be written to. If possible, place them in a directory that is not accessible from the web.

URL Addresses
Please provide the following complete hyperlinks. Use complete hyperlinks, such as http://www.yourdomain.com/cgi-bin, rather than relative links such as "/cgi-bin"
URL for:
UBB CGI Directory
URL for:
UBB Graphics (NonCGI) Directory

Name of Your Bulletin Board
