Struggling to install Ad Management Mod V 1.0.2b on SMF 1.0.7

Please Help

I am struggling to install Ad Management Mod V 1.0.2b on SMF 1.0.7

Selected package manager / download new packages and selected the dowloaded zip named ad_mod_1-0-7_v1-0-2b

Lists under heading Package Manager - Browse Packages but not on menu. When I select Apply Mod I see

 Apply Mod
Please remember to always make regular backups of your sources and database before installing mods, especially beta versions. 

Package Manager - Install Actions
Install Actions for archive
Installing this package will perform the following actions:  Type Action Description
1. Execute Code install.php 
2. Execute Modification ./Sources/ModSettings.php Success
3. Execute Modification ./Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english.php Success
4. Execute Modification ./Themes/default/index.template.php Success
5. Execute Modification ./Themes/default/BoardIndex.template.php Success
6. Execute Modification ./Themes/default/Display.template.php Success
7. Execute Modification ./Themes/default/MessageIndex.template.php Success
8. Execute Modification ./Sources/ManagePermissions.php Success

However I then see:

FTP Information Required
Some of the files this package needs to modify are not writable. This needs to be changed by logging into FTP and chmoding the files. 

I understand some ISPs block CHMOD as when I enter server details nothing happens. On other threads it is suggested manually CHMOD permissions to 777 and find out which files from install.xml

Am I correct to assume it is the files listed 2-8 (above)? as I have manually changed permissions on these files and the directories themes/default (both) and sources but this make no difference when I try to Apply Mod.

Any help would be gratefully received.



Did you change the permissions (chmod) via ftp ??? If so, log into your cpanel and change the permissions that way. Sometimes when you chmod through ftp it doesn`t take effect.


I have checked through my control panel and they have been changed to 777 - any other ideas please?


Is the package folder chmodded to 777 ???
