Hello and welcome to the Meltdown BBS website!

Meltdown BBS is a free, web-based Bulletin Board System written entirely in PHP, which allows message and file exchange, and is compatible with Fidonet-technology networks.

Meltdown BBS utilizes a MySQL backend for its database needs. It is easy to setup, and is customizable with multiple HTML template sets and languages.

It comes with Meltdown BBS Utilities - a collection of scripts that can help with maintenance tasks and convert messages between the MySQL database and Fido *.MSG message areas to provide support for Fidonet-technology networking.
