Hey, i got the latest version of FUDForum off the Download section.

I uploaded all the .php and the .gif files into my website it has mySQL and PHP support.

I run the install.php but it always says:

The directory you've specifieddoes not appear to be the directory where forum sources were decompressed to.

Why is this do i need to call the files from my Hard-Drive or on the webserver?

Someone please help.

Judging by the error I presume you were installing FUDforum 1.9.8RC2.

The error you are seeing is ocurring for a very simple reason.

The install script has placed a file inside the directory you specified as WWW Server Root. Then it tried to access the fiel by going to the web path you speicified as WWW Root. When it was unable to retrieve the file the script complained.

Make sure that files placed in WWW Server Root directory you've speicified can be accessed by going to the web path you've speicified in WWW Root.

This is how i have it set up

Main Root Directory
http://www.php50.com/hackhunter/

Install_data Path
http://php50.com/hackhunter/install_data/


But when i type in /install_data, /, or http://php50.com/hackhunter/install_data/

It says it doesnt exist

Why?

If anyone else could install it, it would be great.

Okie. I went to see your install script and you appear to be running the 1.2X version, not 1.9.8 as I had originally thought.

Here is what you should enter:

Step #1: /www/php50.com/html/hackhunter/
Step #2:
Server Root: /www/php50.com/html/hackhunter/forum/
Forum Data Root: /www/php50.com/html/hackhunter/forum/
Forum WWW Root: http://php50.com/hackhunter/forum/

This will install the forum in such a way it can be accessed via: http://php50.com/hackhunter/forum/

make sure you create /www/php50.com/html/hackhaunter/forum/ directory and chmod it 777 before you proceed.

It means that the install script couldn't execute mkdir() function.

According to the phpinfo() on your server a whole slew of file system functions have been disabled by your admin.

I'd wager that unless a good number of those functions are allowed you won't be able to use the forum.

You should mention to your admin that disaling of the functions he disabled is pointless, since ALL the shell execution functions are still enabled.

Good idea Smile

Bottom line is like this, why disable copy() if fopen() is enabled?
And why disable mkdir(), chmod(), etc... if you can use exec(), system(), popen(). If some wants to use those they'll just use system utils to do the same.
For example: exec("mkdir /mydir"); etc...

how do you do phpinfo() on a site?

That sounds like it could be handy in finding another host if this one wont be able to do it.

Most serious webhost providers offer the output of phpinfo() on their support pages. If they don't you can always ask.

I was able to run phpinfo() on your site since the forum sources have a password protected phpinfo() script Smile

the file was created during the forum installation. It can be found inside the /www/php50.com/html/hackhunter/forum/ directory if that is where you've installed your forum

That is DEFINATELY the reason for the problem.

Could it be that the safe mode has prevented the install script from creating the file?

I would recommend that you find a webhost that has PHP 4.1.0 or higher and has Safe Mode (php) disabled. Safe Mode is a REALLY poor design solution at a problem PHP shouldn't be trying to solve.
Hopefuly once Apache2 mpm support stabalizes this "feature" will die.

GLOBALS.php is a configuration, I can send you a copy, sure, but you still will need to modify the file with the correct paths.

That file gets created during the install process normally.
