YaBB is a leading forum script that allows you to provide a real-time chat and support system for your visitors.

YaBB basically has all features of the commercial scripts, but it is free. YaBB also is considered to be one of the easiest to install and most secure BBS systems in the world. It DOES NOT require a database to work. So it is an outstanding solution for people, who don't have DB support in their web hosting plans.
