Hi

I recently DLed FUDforum and had all of my forums built and settings done. I found out that my FUDforum files were in the same folder as my other website files when i tried to access my other website and it brought me to my fudforum site (both domains accessed my fudforum). I called my web host's tech support for help. The guy told me that my fudforum domain was showing as a subdomain to my other website domain. He had me REMOVE my fudforum domain name from being parked (still dont know how it got parked and was a sub to begin with when it had been active for a few days), and register it as an add-on domain to build another root folder for my fudforum. Shortly after that he had me copy/drag/paste the existing fudforum folders/files into my NEW fudforum root folder. Not all of them transferred to the new root folder. I called tech support again and managed to get my other website files separated from my fudforum files and he also supposedly copied my missing fudforum files and placed them in the NEW root folder and subfolders. But this didnt work. The tech guy THEN told me to reinstall fudforum and it should straighten everything out, but I'm not too sure about that. To reinstall I have to over-ride files that I'd rather not over-ride unless I HAVE to. I dont really want to rebuild the forums again unless i have no choice. There must be a simple solution.

Looking at my files, it seems I have 2 sets of files for my fudforum and when i try to access the website i get THIS MESSAGE:


Warning: require(/home/ultima82/public_html/theme/TIGHTWADZ/language.inc) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/ultima82/public_html/tightwadz.org/index.php on line 1342

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/ultima82/public_html/theme/TIGHTWADZ/language.inc' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/ultima82/public_html/tightwadz.org/index.php on line 1342


I found BOTH FILES and line 1342 that the error log was referring to, but I'm not sure exactly what part of that code im supposed to add to line 1342. I also dont know if im supposed to delete anything before i add the code. Does anyone know how to solve this without reinstalling? I dont mind reinstalling and overriding existing files as long as it wont mess with the forums i just built. Just too scared to reinstall without knowing, and hoping theres a simple solution to this since i managed to locate everything in the error log.

Thanks in advance!

Daniel

If the file is there, but PHP cannot read it, you need to fix its permissions (chmod) and/or ownership (chown).

Thanks fo the reply. If that's the problem, how do I do that? When I went through the files I didn't see the missing file in the area specified, so I was under the impression that it was missing entirely. But I'm no coder, so I wouldn't know. Just going by what I understood of the error log I posted.

Thanks

Daniel

BTW- The tech guy said it wasn't permission based error.. he said it was in the coding.

Issue solved. Changed these files:

$GLOBALS['WWW_ROOT_DISK'] = '/home/ultima82/public_html/

to

$GLOBALS['WWW_ROOT_DISK'] = '/home/ultima82/public_html/tightwadz.org/';
