I'm getting the same error. Same situation. I get no error logging info from my cheap 1&1 domain.
I do not know how or where to change file permissions.
Please help. In layman terms please.
Yes it is but unfortunately phpBB cannot control the setup of your hosts webserver to accommodate for this.
If you wish to try an offline conversion try using easyphp to create a local webserver for you to perform the upgrade.
Please note you will need to backup your phpBB files and database and put these onto the local webserver instance then place back onto your web host after the upgrade.
I tried to find you an article in the knowledgebase on how to do this but one doesn't exist.
If you need more help I will write a knowledge base article for you to follow.
