What's the best software to use for a small myspace type site. I don't like PHP BB2, because it's been hack in to before. Any suggestions on software, server type and maybe a company that has experience with this type of site. Thanks

PHPBB is a forum script - NOT a script like MySpace...

All scripts are likely to have a few bugs, problems, and potential security risks with them. Remember, being hacked is also your responsibility, it coul have been a hole in your hosting company, or you could have simply lost your password to a worm - which means your computer is vulnerable rather than the script.
Also, remember, there are security updates and reporting procedures.

Backup, backup DB, files ect on a regular basis, when data changes ect - frequency is a decisionor you to make.

A quick search on Google would be useful:
MySpace Script [google.com]

Hotscripts - Virtual communities [hotscripts.com] - take a look at Hotscripts for your MySpace similar script.

Remember though, you cant really use MySpace as a great influential factor - make it more unique.
