Installation of CyberBBS is straight forward. You only need to use cbbs and cmanage to install the server.

  1. Create a directory name something like /opt/cbbs or /home/user/cbbs
  2. Extract Zip file into this directory
  3. Run ./cbbs -i to create all initial directories and configuration files (.ini) files. This will overwrite the old files.
  4. Go into your install dir (/opt/cbbs) and change to the etc directory. (/opt/cbbs/etc).
  5. Run ./cmanage -setcap cbbs - This sets the cbbs executable to run on ports lower than 1024.
  6. Configure each area/file as needed. If configuration files are not correct, the server may not run properly.
