Why can't I use IPB forums on Frihost ? It's not illegal at all, because there are 2 versions of IPB :
1) Free Version [ with copyrights ], which can use every one.
2) Paid [ without copyrights ].
So why can't I use free version of it ? I won't remove copyrights or something like that.
There are one more . Nullified version .
Anyway , you just have to show your licence to use it .
They actually do have a trail version. . .
We don't allow IPB forums at all unless you can prove us that you have a valid license for the board in question.
I know that there is a trial version, but most people either install a nullified one and it is very difficult for us to check that. And trial versions are only for trial, not for permanent use like most people do.
Also, don't you need some special software to be able to install it? Things that we don't even have installed on frihost?
All you need is a valid SQL database for most, sometimes some apache stuff or php enabled stuff, other than that usually its fine
I don't see why you can't just use phpbb... the amount of features and add-ons it has is huge...
