Following Error when converting:

Post by nakoda » Wed May 23, 2007 2:22 pm

Installation error

install_convert.php [ 854 ]:
Please make sure that these folders exist and are writable by the webserver then try again:
»images/avatars/gallery/
images/ranks/
images/smilies/.

These folders have been manually set to 777, and the converter still wont continue.

is there a way to access the converter after an install is complete?

When you want to star a convertor, you must install phpBB3 first.
To answer on your question yes you can access the convertor after a installation.

it sounds that the dint have the right permissions, what the convertor already says
Have you chmod the files
images/avatars/gallery/
images/ranks/
images/smilies/.

And not only the images map, and the directory's exist on your web host?
Need phpBB installation, extenstions, Styles or integrate phpBB with you website?

The same thing happened to me but it was a stupid error, I changed the PHPBB2 one instead of the PHPBB3 folders. Make sure it is the PHPBB3 folders are changed correctly.

Just putting my 2 cents in.
