Null iBBS uses cleartext password transmission. If security is a concern, use https!

This program is derived from an earlier version of Sentinel Groupware. This program also shares code with Null Webmail.

Installation

Null iBBS installation is a bit of a do-it-yourself process for the time being.

1) Move all the files and directories to a directory of your choice. /usr/local/ibbs might be a good default.

2) Edit the Makefile and check the mysql and pgsql dependencies.

3) Type 'make mysql' or 'make pgsql' to build the binary.

4) Create your database and use 'ibbsdb.mysql' or 'ibbsdb.pgsql' to create the database schema.

5) Edit etc/ibbs.cfg to match your configuration.

6) Make sure the files/ directory is writable by the user Null iBBS will be run as.

7) Run ./ibbs from bin/ (NOT AS ROOT!).

8) Curse the crappy install process, and give up in disgust (optional).

With luck, you now have Null iBBS running as a standalone server. It can also be run as a cgi by copying the binary and ibbs.cfg to your cgi-bin directory (works for me).
