the problem experienced by the original poster may not be related to a bug in the code, but rather to the way the tarball is created (all the files owned by acydburn:phpbb user:group combination).
people using windoze as a testbed will not notice it, as there is no file ownership on this platform.
if you are on a *nix/linux box, i would suggest to run the following shell command from the phpBB2 directory:

Code: Select all

chown -R apache&#58apache .
assuming your web-server process runs under the "apache" user and group. if it runs otherwise, adjust accordingly.
you will probably need to run this command as a superuser.

There is file ownership on the NTFS, but windows being windows it doesn't pay much attention to it unless you tell it to.

Actually Windows doesnt have File Ownership unless you want to wake up screaming in the middle of the night in your padded cell. ;)

How could file ownership cause that error? :?
