Hello again,

I'm still not able to install FUDForum. The top-level dirs get created with uid/gid wwwrun/www (30/1001), and a number of files also, but some subdirs (namely cache/errors/include/scripts/sql/src/thm) have a funny umask of
u--------- (dunno the uid/gid though).

Figured that one out with an php-based filemanager, which still is not able to delete those dirs.

Now I'm wondering if the umask(0) is the case for it or the setup of my provider, who has set DOCUMENT_ROOT to something like "/home/www/web170/html", but "open_basedir" to /home/www/web170", without the html.

Any help greatly appreciated, as always, since I still would want to use your great product (though my provider pointed me to anotherone more than one time now).

TIA, Peter Zanner

P.S.: I can give you a lot more information, including errmsgs and screenshots if neccessary.

open_basedir should be ok as long as it allows writing to the specified directories. As far as file permissions go, umask(0) should simply unset the default umask offset allowing file creationt to occur without worrying about umask everytime.
