MyBB and CHMOD with myAdmin





LukeakaDanish
I am not sure whether this problem is directAdmin related, MyBB related or "recent server problems" related...

After the recent attack on the 2nd server, i decided to install myBB instead of phpBB on my site, just to avoid having a forum which looks the same as about one million other forums out there...

I uploaded the files with my FTP client, and, following the MyBB instructions, attempted to change the CHMOD of the following files to "666"

./inc/settings.php
./inc/config.php
./uploads
./uploads/avatars

Here comes the problem:

When I then attempt to install MyBB it gives me the following error:

Quote:
The avatars directory (uploads/avatars/) is not writable. Please adjust the chmod permissions to allow it to be written to.


So i attempt to check the CHMOD of the subfolder, but it appears to have been deleted. Just out of curiosity, i change the CHMOD of the "uploads" folder to 755 and then i can once more see the "avatars" subfolder.

Is it not possible to have a writeable folder within another writable folder?

Thanks in advance for the help..Very Happy

Luke

PS: Dont bother writting a message which tells me to use another bb...if noone replies, then i will figure that for myself...!
