3. Setting Permissions
Once the files are finished uploading, you must set permissions (or CHMOD) several places. This is necessary to ensure that XenForo can write to those parts of your server. You can usually do this with your FTP client.
- In the set of files and directories you just uploaded, you will see 2 folders: data andinternal_data.
- These two directories must be set to world writeable (CHMOD 0777) or give the IUSR_ Full Control in Windows.
I've completed the MySQL information and somehow don't have this part completed yet. When I read these directions over the phone to the tech person at Bluehost, he was saying that some of it's not relevant because the numbers are different.
Maybe it's because step 3 is messed up, step 4 isn't working. I typed in the www.yoursite.com/community/install (but used my own site name) and I kept getting an error message saying there were too many install redirects. BlueHost says it's a problem with Xenforo but I'm thinking it's because my step 3 is wrong.
I'm VERY new to this and need some more clearer and precise directions if at all possible. Thanks much!
