    flat file message board

    Anyone know of a UBB or VB style message board that uses flat files? My server doesn't support MYSql.

    I don't know but if your bulletin becomes popular then you would have serious performance problems (because flat database are not powerful as relational databases, ie, just think in a huge database with thousands of records: data extraction would be so slowly and resource-consuming)

    There's a lot of web servers with support mySQL (with low prices), why don't take a look to the web hosting forum?
