[thelist] Database-less Forum SW

I had to write a CMS driven website - without a DB. I used XML to store the content and settings and then parsed that instead of pulling it from a DB, or wrote to it. It worked fine as a small website with not a lot of visitors, but obiously, for larger scle solutions, this would not be appropriate. This was done in ASP 3.0 but I suspect it would work similar in PHP or similar using xerces or whatever. Give me a shout off list if you want some pointers implementing this in ASP3.0. 

Doing it in .NET would be even easier.

Normally I stick with phpBB for forums and use mySQL, but I have a 
prospect that has basic hosting with no database available.  What are my 
best alternatives for a forum that does not use a database?  Traffic 
should be minimal.
