... and there are bbs[number] folders alongside the messagelist file, right?

$archive_basedir is no variable. Shouldn't do anything, but better delete this line

: what other configurations you need.
OK, so you have a working webbbs_config.pl and admin_config.pl for the forum.
You need a copy of both pointing to '/archive' as it's $data_subdir.
Try to get the public side working first.
In the package you downloaded, there is a file "arch_config.pl"
That's the public entry script for the archive. Use that file. Edit the $data_basedir and forum name and upload the file.
It's preconfigured and should work if edited, uploaded and chmod 755 just like the live forum.
The URL should be something like this:
However, this URL currently returns an error. Either the file isn't there yet or something went wrong when editing, uploading, chmod 755 was done.
Do it the same with the arch_config.pl file as you did with webbbs_config.pl and you should be fine
Once you have that public entry going, I can help you to do the rest.
: thank you
You're always welcome.
