you need to chmod the folder and its contents recursively...

Do you use FTP client or shell account?

Does your ftp client support the "chown" command?

it be easier if it did. But you can do without it here are the instructions:

for example sakes I'll /home/forum/www/docs/forum/ as the path for the directory where the forum is installed.

chmod 777 /home/forum/www/docs/forum/
chmod 777 /home/forum/www/docs/forum/styles/
chmod 777 /home/forum/www/docs/forum/styles/default/
chmod 666 /home/forum/www/docs/forum/styles/default/*

Replace the /home/forum/www/docs/forum/ with the path to the root web browseable directory of the forum.

The webserver owns the file, BUT you own the root directory, hence you should be able to change permissions as you please.

I recieve this same error except with the root directory of unknowns.

I have did chmod 777 of forums and of unknown
yet I can't touch the includes directory at all

Now have you considered the fact that the script installing the forums is setting the folder permissions wrong?

Since this tends to come up time and time again and I can't touch the headers or design stuff in the unknown directory.

You can use the forum's file manager to change the permission of all the forum files.

Do u have shell access on ur web account? If so u could ssh/telnet there and do a chown either with typing the command or via Midnight Commander (bash$: mc)

Ok that didn't work either. I get a changing ownership not permitted when I do the include directory. The forum and unknown directory can be changed though.

Seriously you probably have a bug in your code.

Does your system have safe_mode enabled?

Send me your email via PM and I'll send you a debug script, then I'll be able to tell you exactly what is the problem and if indeed there is a bug with the Forum's file manager.
