I'm trying to get a BBS <http://phpboard.thelinuxcommunity.org/>
running on our intranet and I'm experiencing a lot of difficulty.

I'm running FreeBSD 4.4 with current versions of MySQL and
Apache + php4

I followed the INSTALL instructions for phpBoard and they
seemed fairly simple but when I point a browser to the BBS
directory, I get the following:

Parse error: parse error, expecting `T_VARIABLE' or `'$'' in
/usr/local/share/doc/apache/phpboard/config_inc.php3 on line 178
(Line 178 is $user_table_name = 'users';)

Fatal error: Failed opening required 'sql_inc.php3' (include_path
='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /usr/local/share/doc/apache/phpboard/index.php
on line 24
(Line 24 is    require $inc_dir . "sql_inc.php3";)

phpBoard includes a perl script that you can use to change your
scripts extensions.  So, if your extensions are .php, you can change
them to .html, .php3 or even .phtml

When I convert everything to .phtml and point a browser at
the BBS directory, it lists the file contents of the directory.

Can anybody help?
