 Getting Started

Is your host/server running up-to-date versions of PHP and mySQL?
- Download http://www.yabbse.org/manual/phpinfo.zip, unzip the package and upload the file phpinfo.php to your host.
  Open your browser and in your address bar type: eg. 'http://www.mysite.com/phpinfo.php'
  Your hosts PHP version is right at the top of the page, and mySQL version (if installed) is half way down.
	
Is your server's PHP running in Safe-mode?
- Check the phpinfo.php page again and scroll down to 'Configuration >> PHP Core'. Near the bottom of
  the list you will find the value for safe_mode; all your interested in is the local value, not the master.
  (If its not listed, talk to your host. Most FreeHosts have Safe-Mode enabled.)
