Psunami Bulletin Board is an Open Source alternative to the popular Ultimate Bulletin Board software, and aims for speed, ease of use, and a full feature set.
For installation, do the following:
1)Recursively copy everything from ./cgi-bin/ into your server's cgi-bin/ directory.
2)Recursively chown (chown -R) the psunami/ directory to the user that your web server uses (www-data on Debian, nobody on Slack, httpd on RHat-based systems (I've been told that it is nobody on someRHat systems), wwwrun on SuSE. Anyone know what it is for others?) If you are unable to chown (eg. you are not the superuser) then make sure it is all readable/writable by the user (777 works, but is probably much too generous). Also do this to the psunami.conf file in cgi-bin.
3)Make psunami.cgi, psunami_admin.cgi, and psunami_moderate.cgi executable by the user that your web server uses. (chmod u+x *.cgi)
4)Change the paths to your perl executable if necessary. The paths are at the top of psunami.cgi, psunami_moderate.pl, and psunami_admin.cgi and default to /usr/bin/perl. Type 'which perl' at a command prompt if you don't know where the executable is.
5)Run psunami_admin.cgi and create a new board. The initial login is 'psunami' and the password is 'bulletin' (no quotes).
6)Make sure that your mail program is configured properly in the preferences. It defaults to /usr/bin/sendmail.
7)Once you have created an account for yourself and given it admin rights, make sure you delete the psunami user.
