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

<< < (3/3)

Hi

I have also changed permissions on sources folder (but not files within it) to 777 but still am being asked for 

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. 

after numbers 1 to 8 have appeared ok.

I am happy that all the permissions we have discussed are correctly set at 777 but this all makes no sense as the message says Some of the files this package needs to modify are not writable.

Failing that, shall I make a backup copy of the whole of the forum directory and then make ALL permissions in the forum directory to 777 and see if that works vefore restoring to the backup?

Making all folders and file 777 is no problem and you shouldn`t have to go to all the trouble of backing up, but it is a good idea. [unknown] has made a post at Smf about permissions and why 777 is not a problem.

sparkimarki:
Hi

Changed all permissions to 777 and install worked! Many thanks for all your help.

Sparkimarki.

bigguy:
No problem.

jerm:
try creating a folder inside the package folder named temp, and chmod it to 777
if 777 doesnt work, try 755
