Vanilla and Godaddy hosting
Hi there, I have done a search and not found this information anywhere. Sorry if I have missed it. I'd be delighted if someone could point me in the right direction if I have. I am looking to installed Vanilla 1.1.4 on my website (the905board.com). For now, I am installing in a folder (the905board.com/board) just to try it out and get used to using it. While running the install, I got the following page. Vanilla Installation Wizard (Step 1 of 3) We came across some problems while checking your permissions... Failed to create the 'd:/hosting/snaxsnax/board/conf/database.php' configuration file. Failed to create the 'd:/hosting/snaxsnax/board/conf/extensions.php' configuration file. Failed to create the 'd:/hosting/snaxsnax/board/conf/language.php' configuration file. Failed to create the 'd:/hosting/snaxsnax/board/conf/settings.php' configuration file. Navigate the filesystem of your server to the Vanilla folder. Vanilla will need read AND write access to the conf folder. There are many ways to set these permissions. One way is to execute the following from the root Vanilla folder: chmod 777 ./conf You will also need to grant read access to the extensions, languages, setup, and themes folders. Typically these permissions are granted by default, but if not you can achieve them with the following commands: chmod -R 755 ./extensions chmod -R 755 ./languages chmod -R 755 ./setup chmod -R 755 ./themes I have changed the permissions of all the folders in /board (including conf obviously), but am still getting this page. This is my first time using Vanilla. I am not sure what to do or where to go to continue from here. I do not know how to "execute" the commands...not sure what program to use even. Any help is appreciated. I am using a windows vista laptop. The server is a windows server. Any other technical information you need, I'd be happy to provide. I love what I see from Vanilla, but am finding the install to be fairly difficult (this part anyway!) Thanks gang.
