Hi Smile

I am really surprised by the effectiveness the fudforum offers. That is the reason why i decided to install my Forum by usage of this Software.
But unforunatly my PHP Knowledge ist pretty low and the installation did not work out of the box.

I copied all the files to ftp::/myhomepage.de/forum/
and started the installation by executing /myhomepage.de/forum/install.php.

But i allways get the error message, that the Install script failed to create "/homepages/7/d68446624/FUDforum/". I am supposed to create it manually and chmod it 777 or make it's user/group same as the web-server (p666666/ftpusers).

I have no clue what to do and i also do not know about these strange pathnames ( what the heck is /homepage/7/... ? I never created this directory.

Since my english is not that good, i caputered the screen. I wohld be very gratefull, if somebdy could help me.

The directory where you want to install the forum into should be created by YOU and chmoded 777. That is the only thing you need to do.
