I installed fudforum on my windows 2000, I found some problems.

When I want to add a Category CAT1, I saw the following warnings (in red) .
then I added forum FORUM1 under CAT1, I saw the same warnings

When I went to the index.php, surprisingly FORUM1 is under Test Category instead of CAT1

Warning: rename(D:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/FUDforum/cache/cat_cache.inc.tmp,D:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/FUDforum/cache/cat_cache.inc): File exists in D:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\FUDforum\include\cat.inc on line 167

Warning: rename(D:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/FUDforum/cache/idx.inc.tmp,D:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/FUDforum/cache/idx.inc): File exists in D:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\FUDforum\include\cat.inc on line 191

actually, I know what is going on now.

This is the limitation of php on window 2000 or XP.

if the file that is renamed to exist, php will not overwrite that. This happens only on windows php. not on unix.

the workaround is adding one line of code to delete that file, then do the renaming.

The problem with deleting the file 1st is that this process destroyes the atomicity of the rename(), which is why this function is being used in the first place.

Hi,

Does this mean that the latest version (2.6.9) does not have this problem on windows 200 anymore?

So what was the patch that was applied? I'm sure there are other users out here who are reading this and telling us that there was one without detailing exactly what it was doesn't help.

So far, out of the 50 odd forum packages I have looked at, this one has the most promise. I would like to use it, but really can't imagine the gruelling task of having to delete these two files EVERY time I make a new forum.

Here is the url to the patch: http://cvs.prohost.org/c/index.cgi/FUDforum/chngview?cn=3262

If you upgrade to 2.6.10RC1 you'll get the patched version.
