Security Notice: Included with the Hyperbook setup files is a "phpinfo.php" file which is used for displaying system configuration information. While this file in itself does not pose a security threat, the information displayed could be used by hackers looking for servers susceptible to attack. For this reason, it is recommended that you remove the phpinfo.php file from your guestbook directory as it is not required for the proper operation of the Hyperbook software. However, if you contact the developer requesting technical support, please make the phpinfo.php file available as it is can be helpful in troubleshooting system related issues.

The following list is a sample of some of the websites which are using the HyperBook Guestbook. It has been deployed in a number of languages and formats, and in some cases is being used for purposes other than a traditional guestbook. Of particular note is the Laci Peterson guestbook, which received a tremendous amount of traffic and as of my last visit had over 150,000 posts.
