it means that the file does not exist, check capitalization (linux servers require that)

have you tried using a .htaccess file in your ftp to give yourself access?

You could try SMF, it's the continuation of YaBB SE (a PHP port of YaBB). SMF may be found at http://www.simplemachines.org/, and works perfectly on FriHost.

If you still want to use YaBB, then try changing
Code:

#!/usr/bin/perl

to
Code:

#!/usr/local/bin/perl


This may or may not work.
