    Ok, now can you tell me, how I get around it, so that my forum will work. Saying what I can seem is just repeating what I posted....its not a help.....and where does it talk about apache.....
  • Options
    ok, now, got something, I made /srv/\ writable, but now I get no site looks like this .......and it keeps telling my my config.php file is not writeable, and it will only work, if config.php is 777, which means I'm open to attack, how do I get around that.

    How about you keep 1 thread with all your problems. I will give a hint. They are mostly related to not being able to write to certain areas, directories missing, etc.

    I will close this thread and let's keep the other thread open for a while till you've figured out that re-installing is a viable option, setting permissions correctly and then post a problem if there ever is one.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.
