Installing phpbb3 permissions

Post by Shaff »

It says: (in Files and Directories)
cache/:
Found, Unwriteable

files/:
Found, Unwriteable

store/:
Found, Unwriteable



And I seriously have no idea how to give permissions. x_x

You must go to your webhost space (ftp server) and search for that files and then chmod them.
( chmod = with to choice the files and click on the right on properties en then 777 for the permissions)

Wrong forum...

But to do that you have to use CHMOD to change the permissions, which can usually be done with your FTP client.

is this unix or windows based server?

if windows contact your host to request write permissions to be enabled

if unix you need to use a FTP program and CHMOD the directories to 777
