Can you post a link to the forum and website?
Hi (sorry for the delay – putting kids to bed)
Here is my website http://www.schooladmissionappeals.co.uk, and this is where I think the forum should be http://www.schooladmissionappeals.co.uk/forum.
Many thanks for any help you can give.
Have you uploaded every single file into the folder? It seems that you do not have an install file in your bbPress folder.
I think so – I just drag and dropped the whole folder in. I’ll try downloading, unzipping and uploading again to see if that helps.
I still can’t get it. I even renamed the directory BBPress to see if that would somehow help! so it should now be at http://www.schooladmissionappeals.co.uk/BBpress – still no joy.
I checked and in the admin folder there are three install files (install rtl.cc, install css, install php). I am probably making some really obvious mistake but I just can’t get my head around it (it took me half a day to manage wordpress’s 5 minute install so I should have expected some issues!)
Any help is much appreciated.
In FileZilla, please can you tell me what it says when you go to “Change File Permissions” for the folder “BBPress”. It may have configured your folders incorrectly.
Furthermore, I must ask you: Are you using a free-hosting service, a paid hosting service, or a local file-server (eg in you house)?
to summarise the box; it says owner permission to read,write, execute; group permission to read and execute; public permission to read and execute; numeric value 755, recurse into sub directories is not checked.
I’m being hosted by one.com, its a normally a paid for service but I got the first twelve months free.
Many thanks again for your help.
It seems the permissions are okay – 775 should be fine. I don’t see where the problem is coming from. Ther may be a problem with one.com.
I use 000webhost.com, and my forum works perfectly. I can’t see where the problem lies.
Sorry I can’t help.
