huh, i cant believe what happening here,

And thank you Dicky for your time,

error is :

Installation error

install_convert.php [ 856 ]:
Please make sure that this folder exists and is writable by the webserver then try again:
»images/avatars/gallery/.



I think that I understand what error saying to me, and so I have those folders at phpBB2 and at phpBB3 ( httpdocs / forum / images / avatars / gallery ) and all have set up to 777/rwx rwx rwx , but i get this error, now i am really confused .

I am going crazy :x


Anyone can help please ?

What permissions do you have on that folder chmod to for the phpBB2 board and phpBB3 board?

I think what karl is saying, is to check the folders on the phpbB2 board as well as the phpbB3 board. Set all 3 folders to 777; images, avatars and gallery, for both boards.

Hello Dicky,

I did that immediately because i went step by step like this tutorial :
# You need to install a fresh phpBB3 board on the same hosting account/server as the phpBB2 board which needs to be present and fully functional.
# Make sure the phpBB3 permissions are correctly set

* Files 777
* cache 777
* store 777
* images/avatars/upload 777
* All other folders 755
* All other files 644

However for the conversion only you may want to also alter a few other permissions

* smilies 777
* ranks 777
* avatars 777
* Remember these permissions will need setting back to how they should be after the conversion.


and now i sow this:
* Config.php: 666 before install, 644 after install
* Cache directory: 777
* Images/avatars directory: 777
* All other directories: 755
* All other files: 644


I am not sure that is my Config.php permission set to 644 maybe that is a problem ?

Yea, now i have take a look at Config.php and he is set to 777 ill try to change it to 644 and than try it ,,,

But the Images/avatars and gallery are set to 777 .

I let you updated .

Thanks .

What i did now, i got so many error's ;/

[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /install/install_install.php on line 24: include_once(./../config.php) [function.include-once]: failed to open stream: Permission denied
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /install/install_install.php on line 24: include_once() [function.include]: Failed opening './../config.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:')

[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /install/install_convert.php on line 590: install_convert::require(./../config.php) [function.install-convert-require]: failed to open stream: Permission denied


I have just change the Config.php: to 644 , and i got this error .

I change it because of this tutorial
* Config.php: 666 before install, 644 after install
* Cache directory: 777
* Images/avatars directory: 777
* All other directories: 755
* All other files: 644


Any idea ?

config.php should be set to 644, but if the convertor was working before with config.php set to 777, set it back to 777. You will want to change it after the conversion is done so people don't have access to it.

You might also try setting you gallery folder permissions to 766 or 755 to see if the convertor will accept one of those.

MySQL server has gone away [2006] can be caused because the MySQL server timed out and lost the connection. Check with your host and have them check the uptime. Have them check the MySQL log for any indications of errors.

If the problem can't be resolved, you will have to do the conversion offline.
