I uploaded everything and the install page and the main page say FORBIDDEN.
you need to check your folder (public root ) permission
What server are you running ? and which group is it running under? (or role in some cases )
More info is needed to debug this.
But forbidden = permission issue.
Run the xenforo test php file to see if your site is ready to run xenforo.
Check with the host if your public html directory is set correctly.
Make sure you uploaded in the correct format and that all the files are there. What ftp are you using?
PHP Version 5.1.6
I uploaded the files with cuteftp. the permissions are 755 for folders, 644 for files.
Does it matter that Im uploading it to another domain (to install it) and not the domain i have set in my profile here under my license? (that isnt set up yet with my host)
PHP version must be 5.2.4 for XenForo, according to Mike's post.
Did you run the script in that post - http://xenforo.com/xenforo-requirements-test.zip ?
actually i did after posting that, i already emailed my host and asked them to upgrade some stuff on it. Hopefully they do it since its a managed hosting dedicated server account. thanks guys!
is the mysql server good?
Make sure you are running the latest built .. email your host to confirm
When you are loading it with cuteftp are you loading it as Binary or Ascii? And according to the instructions, these files are to be cmod 777 not 755.
I stopped using cuteftp long ago cause it was forever giving me errors and loading only partial files. Filezilla and WinSCP are better solutions and they are both free, Cyberduck if you are on a Mac.
Yes, the MySQL version looks OK.
Even so, I wouldn't expect the PHP version is the cause of the forbidden status.
As Blandt said originally, it's most likely to do with permissions, or lack of them.
Make sure you are running mysqli as well.
I stopped using cuteftp because it aint cute
WinSCP does a fine job of everything You just need to make sure you are running passive mode
The latest MySQL release 5.5 rc (few weeks ago) offers lots of good fixes and speed enhancement to the Innodb engine .. worth the upgrade if you can do it
ive never had to change permissions to access stuff on upload. It always works with the default. Maybe it says forbidden if your server cant run it?
No, a forbidden status wouldn't be the result if the php version was too low.
You have to change the cmod on your data and internal data folders, they aren't set at 777 by default.
Who is your server?
ive chmodded those folders as well 777. ive attached winscp (which I downloaded and used that to upload the files again, still says forbidden)
Most likely your domain is pointing to the wrong folder
go back to cpanel and verify that your domain root folder is actually what you think it is
