Installation error

    Hi @udawwa, you'll need to allow your server to write to the folders indicated. The error message contains a suggested fix. However, I recommend trying 664 instead of 777 first.

    When people install with out some script like simple scripts that creates a db and also asks for what directory to install in and you set it up from there, they tend to install it in the wrong place.

    Maybe they need directions as to how to create a new db and also a new directory for the installation.

    1.Create a new Directory for the forum in your root for your site.

    2.Create a new database or the forum write down the name of user and database name and password. Do not use the same name for these.

    3.Start the install, fill in the fields with the info for the data base.

    If it is an update, save the config and anything you customized then overwrite the files with the new install. Then replace the config with the one you saved. Make sure the version number matches the new one.

    use filezilla or ssh into your host or use cpanel.

    contact your host provider, if you don't understand how to do any of these.
    this is a basic understanding that should be known by anyone running a forum.

    or search on google how to change folder or file permissions.
