I have uploaded all files to my forums folder. After calling the install URL i do get this
The following errors occurred while verifying that your server can run XenForo:

  • All directories under /var/www/vhosts/brainlag.eu/httpdocs/data must be writable. Please change the permissions on these directories to be world writable (chmod 0777).
  • All directories under /var/www/vhosts/brainlag.eu/httpdocs/internal_data must be writable. Please change the permissions on these directories to be world writable (chmod 0777).
Please correct these errors and try again.
But both folders are set to 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?
