Forum by PHP (without SQL)

Hi All:

I found the software PBLang is a forum by PHP without using the MYSQL.

Is there any similar suggestion?
I mean a forum package using PHP ONLY and no need to install a data base.

Ummm ... why?

It may be OK to use some flat text-file for the
first one hundred, maybe even thousand posts...

But then the performance impact is going to kill
the fun of using it ...

Seriously, I can't imagine why you'd want to do this. The only valid reason I can think of would be if you're forced to because your web host supports php but not mysql, which would be odd, but not unheard of.

But even if that is the case, there are sites out there that let you set up a free forum running phpBB or something similar on their servers, so I don't think there's much need for a non-DB forum.

A forum is really a bit too complex to be trying to run from a flat file. But if you're determined to try it, I looked up on, and found a couple for you:

You'll probably find more if you look around, but those were the first two that came up.

I hope that helps.

There are a couple of forums based on the flat-file model but they use Perl/CGI rather than PHP. I think a quick search would yield some results. I forget the actual sites.
