install on a server without 777 permissions

Post by yfcteam »

Hello
I try install the 3.0.8 version, but my hosting does not allow permissions in 777 for security reasons and i can not start the installation.
Allowed permissions are 755 for folders and 644 for files ; other permissions never work.
Any idea on how i can install phpBB on this server?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
Best regards
Dan

It is possible that your domain registration has not propagated globally yet. Note that it may take up to 48 hours for a new domain to become accessible.

If the domain name is already accessible and is pointed to the correct server, you should be able to access your forum installation. If there are any problems with the permissions, you will see an Internal Server Error. At this point the best thing you can do is contact your host for further assistance.

Your domain is not resolving at any of the nameservers I queried anywhere in the world. Check with the company you purchased the domain from. Don't bother trying to install phpBB until your domain resolves. :)
