An error ocurred whilst installing the mod
« on: December 03, 2006, 09:30:21 pm »
Hi there,
I just tried to install the mod but it comes up with an error. It says:

2: copy(/usr/local/www/htdocs/forum.mysite.com/public_html/Sources/ModSettings.php~): failed to open stream: Permission denied
File: /usr/local/www/htdocs/forum.mysite.com/public_html/Sources/Subs-Package.php
Line: 1241

has anyone got an idea how to solve this?
Every kind of help would be highly appreciated!
Cheers
Goose

CHMOD all your files and folders.
Also, tell me what it says in the error log if you continue to get errors.

It is safe, but if you feel uneasy , switch it back to whatever you want.

I'm not big on permissions, i think everything is fine at 777, but you can change things to 755. Folders i believe can be at 644. However, i would contact my host to find out whats best for my board. They would know best.
