... but Phorum uses a database. Carol said he didn't want to use a database:

I think you should use your database for Phorum. It's easier to administrate
than a textfile-based forum. Combining the Phorum-tables with your other
applications in one database is no problem. Phorum can use prefixes for the
table names, so the Phorum user table will simply be called: phorum_users.

For the forum, you might have a look at Phorum (phorum.org). I've installed
it on several sites. It doesn't require logins, it's fairly easy to install
and customized once you figure out how to do it, and pretty easy to
administer, too.
