Sadly, near as I can tell, support for flat text files for forum data storage is a thing of the past. Wikipedia's list only shows two out of a fairly long list that support flat text, and both of those (Ikonboard and UBB.classic) are approximately as dead as DCForum. Everything that's still in active maintenance seems to run on SQL (usually MySQL).
