discussion group and file upload

dannoura has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

hi monks,

I'm want to build a website that will have both a discussion board and a file upload section. The traffic to this website will probably be fairly small and the size of the uploaded files should be about 10kb or less. What would the monks recommend for this?

I know there's some free code out there for discussion boards and some modules used for upload, but I'm wondering which would be best for the task.

[LanX]: before digging into deep debugging ... I have a strange UTF8 problem, probably it rings a bell:
[LanX]: two utf8 strings from different sources are base64 encoded, but after joining both the umlauts in teh second get deleted
[Corion]: LanX: You can't just join two base64 strings together
[LanX]: (not a high priority bug because I can use some HTML entities in the second string)
[Corion]: base64 is padded to a multiple of 4 chars (or something)
[LanX]: misunderstanding, I joined them before converting to base64
[Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
[Corion]: LanX: Then the problem should persist without encoding to base64 too ;)
