Returns 404 with this message:

    I guess Safe Mode is on.... Before install, you need add htaccess or ask hosting server. Im my situation, I added htaccess and then I was able to install and change it.

    Thanks eijila, I ended up hiring someone on Rentacoder for $25 to install it and 3 plugins. If I could just get someone to tell me how to USE the Add Member and Category Roles now? Can't find a single link on the admin control panel. Rick Butts
