    Did you cmod just the folders or everything inside as well?

    All sub-directories also have to be 777.

    It's not new to Beta 6.
    Quite a few people have had problems with previous Beta versions due to all sub-directories not having the correct permissions.

    Got this error after uploading the upgrade files for Xenforo 1.3.3. I haven't done any permission changes on those folders, so why is Xenforo suddenly bugging me with this?

    • All directories under /var/www/data must be writable. Please change the permissions on these directories to be world writable (chmod 0777).

    ... and just as suddenly as the error appeared, it disappeared! :eek:
