Install error - New User Please Help!

edited February 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Please excuse my ignorance as I know very little about php etc, but I have been running phpbb with no problems and decided to shift to vanilla.

I have followed the install instructions but get the following message:

file_put_contents(/home/legitima/public_html/forum/cache/locale_mappings.php) [function.file-put-contents]: failed to open stream: Permission denied

The site is hosed on using a subsite.

Can anyone help?

    Well, judging from the error message given, it had trouble writing a file to the cache directory listed because of a permssions error. Try using your FTP client to set the cache directories to 755 and that any files inside are 644. Or well, basically just make sure you can write new files there. You could also ask your web host for help or temporarily set permissions to 777 and see if that fixes it.
