404 error message during instllation of some MODs

Wondering why that MOD you have won't install correctly? Let's take a look

404 error message during instllation of some MODs

Post by loggia » Tue Oct 23, 2007 11:35 am

Bonjour.

After an easy installation of EM, I have this 404 error message during instllation of some MODs : "The requested URL /phpBB2/admin/admin_easymod.php was not found on this server."

I already install "Admin_Userlist_206c" using EM without problem. But I got the 404 error trying to install "Zero users. or " User Shield". Here's the path to "admin_easymod.php" on my FTP client (from the root folder of the site):

Here's the config of EM :

All the files on the phpBB folder have 755 permissions. "admin_easymod.php" have 644 permissions. I'm using phpBB v.2 up to date. I suspect some dumb error on my side but connot find it.

Thanks for any help.

I forgot to mention that the 404 error came after a succesful "step 1".

first, go to your ftp and correct all your phpbb file permissions.

all phpbb files should be set to 644
all phpbb folders should be set to 755
if you allow uploading of avatars, then the avatars folder should be set to 777

once you have that done.
then you can copy any SQL statements that are in the MOD file and paste them into a text file.

then, remove them from the MOD file and run it again.

if it is successful, then you do the SQL directly on the database using phpmyadmin or similar.

I have seen this problem before, The SQL part is what caused it. I could not figure out why, but removing it from the MOD solved the problem.

Bonjour Robert.

I already find a way to modify the code of the files to achieve what I had in mind with these MODs (Hide User List & Last registrated user). I will keep your advise for the near future as I have another MOD to install quite soon.

Thanks a lot for your time and your attention.
