General Settings

This section of the Mystic BBS Configuration System allows the SysOp to configure a number of general settings that apply to the overall BBS system. There are areas here that you will want to update from their default settings.

This example screen is from a Windows based system and displays the standard 'out of the box' settings that ship with the default installation.
