Yes, just went through the document and there were some minor things I had to change on PHP.INI.

But you are only testing your own permissions, not those of your web server software when you do this.tsmvp wrote: As I said I can definitely go in the folder and create files, no problem.
It is not phpBB which determines where the permissions come from, it is your web server software.tsmvp wrote:...Why PHPBB relies on the local Users group I have no idea.
