I tried:
http://www.ikonboard.com
And cannot get it to work!, I am having someone I know try and install Ikonboard and also YaBB.
Ikonboard looks very professional as does YaBB.
If I do not have to I do not want to use wwwboard since it is not "professional looking".

You know what I hate? I hate it when someone posts that they "need help big time" so you go off and do some research for them (research that they could have done themselves with nothing more difficult than a friggin' google search) and when you post a response they don't even give a "thank you".

I tried www.ikonboard.com +3 times each of these versions I tried: 2.2 version, 2.19 version and 3.0.
Then I tried yabb.xnull.com, twice so far.
I am going to try wwwboard as a last resort because it does not look good or look Professional.
I do not have java servlets on my webserver, so I did not try Jivesoftware.
I also do not have PHP on my server either. But I will research it some more.
Anyway Thanks Thomas Paul and others for some new links that I did not know about!
I am hoping I will find an XML messageboard that looks professional like UBB or Ikonboard. The 2 XML BBS I downloaded are at the wwwboard stage in development and not high end.

So either install it or move to a different provider. It took me about 20 minutes to install and configure php.

An XML messageboard? Since XML is not a programming language that would be a curious type of board to say the least. Do you perhaps mean a Perl board that stores the data in XML format?

it took maybe 10 minutes at most for me to install and configure php on apache..a lot easier than installing tomcat was. if you have your own server thats what i would do.
