Installation.

Post by JustTesting123 »

Hey guys I am trying to follow the videos on how to install the software on to my FTP server. I got stuck at 2 things:

1) WHen I have to change config.php from permissions 644 to 666 it says:
FILE TRANSFER LOG
Request denied.
Verify that the file or folder exists and that you have the necessary permissions on the server to perform the requested operation

And

2) it says to point to your browser and open up the broswer to the install.php. When I do that, it doesnt open up the software instead it gives me a big long code.

The second problem is much more important than the first. It sounds like your host does not have PHP installed, which is required for phpBB. Who is your host?
