Vanilla 1 is no longer supported or maintained. If you need a copy, you can get it here.
First I am on a Mac. I have a Rapid Weaver site on MacDoc that I want to put a Vanilla forum on. I emailed MacDoc with the requirements and they replied that there should be no problems. Vanilla is popular as a forum with Rapid Weaver users, which is where I got the idea to try it. The instructions I followed there helped me get Vanilla downloaded. I used Cyberduck to upload the Vanilla files to MacDock. I left the file folder with the name Vanilla-1.1.4 so I would know the version # I am using later when updates come out. Cyberduck reveals my folders on MacDoc including Vanilla-1.1.4. The "conf" folder in Vanilla-1.1.4 only contains a read me file. The read me says: "About Vanilla Configuration =========================== All customizations to Vanilla configuration settings should be done in this conf (short for "Configuration") folder. After you run the Vanilla installer, this conf folder should contain four files: 1. database.php 2. extensions.php 3. language.php 4. settings.php" ....removed the discriptions of each I see a extensions.php document but only the read me file in the conf folder. I do not understand how to fix the Permissions at the start of the Vanilla install. I see in the movie that "chmod 777 ./conf" is copied and entered somewhere in a file. The author seems to get some black page with code to come up and inserts the command or something. The movie moves fast and the type is very small for old eyes. I have paused it but still can not figure out how "chmod 777 ./conf" is used to fix the permissions. I can not come up with an idea to proceed.
