Missing the 4 files in /conf

edited December 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hello all, I just installed the latest version of Vanilla (1.1.5a) and it seemed to go well. Well... I tried installing some extensions. For some reason, when I clicked on the checkbox, they weren't actually activating. I did some snooping, and found that /conf/extensions.php can be where I can edit somethings. Well, I looked, and there are no files in that folder! I read the readme.txt file and it said there should be 4 files. There are none. Can anyone help me out with what's up?

    You probably need to set folder permissions for the conf folder; you need to give Vanilla permission to create and edit files in that folder.

    Any tips on how to accomplish that? Also, what do I need to do to regenerate those files since they aren't presently there?

    Well once you figure out how to change the folder permissions you should re-install Vanilla, and that will create the files.
    I assume you are using FTP to upload the files to a web server, is that right? If so, what program? If not, what is your server setup?

    If the forum is working (except for enabling extension) the 4 files must be somewhere; you would get the installation page if vanilla can't find these files.

    Of course, silly of me to forget. In that case he probably is using FTP and forgot to download the folder contents from the server to his local machine.

    Yep, all fixed. Re-installed. Thanks for the help guys!
