Hey Frank, thanks a ton for your MOD it's bound to be really helpful as soon as I can get it working.
Here's the problem I have. Per your instructions, I've filled in the full path to the files directory based on the path given by phpinfo(), which is:
When I click "install", I get the following error:
PunBB reported: Unable to copy index.html file to new subfolder with name '/home/.servername/blakeyrat/domain.com/forum/files/da3d9666984ab2938a8f4af1b24daa7f'
As you can see, the path given by phpinfo() and the path given by this error message are different... the error one contains an extra folder that I don't see otherwise. The weird thing is that if I modify the path I enter to include that extra folder, I get the exact same error. I'm assuming this is the result of some kind of redirection my host is doing? Is there any way to use a relative path instead of an absolute path?
Just noticed this. It can create the folder successfully, but it can't write *inside* of the folder. So it looks like it's a plain old permissions issue. That said, I still don't know what's going on... the permissions of /files is correct, shouldn't the permissions of folders created inside of it be the same?
The folder created has permissions of 750
Is this a configuration error? Can anybody help me out here?
