That is highly dependent on your server (Apache, Litespeed, etc.) installation. My board runs as me, not "nobody" and therefore runs quite nicely with 770 permissions.

I would not be telling anyone 777 unless I knew what his installation looked like. He could be creating a security hole.

Well those are PhpBB3 requirements they dont make any security holes.

@bryntwr
Check that your includes/constants.php has the following in it:

Code: Select all

// phpbb_chmod() permissions
@define('CHMOD_ALL', 7);
@define('CHMOD_READ', 4);
@define('CHMOD_WRITE', 2);
@define('CHMOD_EXECUTE', 1);  
They should be right after:

Code: Select all

define('REFERER_VALIDATE_PATH', 2);  
Or Download this fresh copy of constants.php and overwrite your current file with this fresh copy.
Download
Clear your cache after you make these changes.
Hope this works for you bro! :D
