    without MySQL you wont be using vb.

    I suggest getting MySQL and getting vb. VB is better performance wise, and it is a thousand times easier to install.

    I agree with aspen. I have heard so much great stuff about VB (and love it, because that's what i'm using as we speak!)

    I know that when I get my new forums, I will get mySQL and get VB, because it is alot faster than ubb, and I don't want to weigh down my server.

    You could also try UltraBoard, but I wouldn't choose this over vB or UBB. UltraBoard is a nice alternative to the big two, and I am pretty sure it doesn't require MySQL either.

    what is the url for UltraBoard?
    What about Ikonboard? I just tried it and it looks and works just like UBB. I cant see any difference. Is any one using it?
