    php + sql


    Hi everybody!
    I am interested to install a sql bulletin board system on my web server which I access through ftp (my server supports php4 and html pages).
    As far as I know, there is no sql server or cgi bin bin installed.

    In addition to:
    1. Through my ftp program I can change a file's or folder's permition to chmod 777
    2. The server is running on unix
    3. Some time ago I uploaded a very simple forum on my server which stored data on simple text files. The forum worked without any problem.

    My questions:
    1. Is there a way to use a bbs which is running with sql?
    2. If yes how do I install sql?
    3. Are there any alternatives to sql? (regarding bbs)

    Thank you in advance
