Re: Updated Quick Guide
Just downloaded 2.4 today.
the zip file does not contain a folder named placeholder.txt which is referenced in
\Quick-Guide\English\install\3.html modified 4/15/09 10:13PM
Quote:
•public_html/yabbfiles/avatars/UserAvatars/folder placeholder.txt  (in ASCII) -rw-rw-rw- (CHMOD 666)
 
Not sure which is correct.
  • the folder is missing from the zip and therefore should be added manually
  • the folder is no longer required and the Quick Guide needs to be updated to remove the reference
  • the folder is required in certain environments
  • other
Please advise.

Re: Updated Quick Guide
The placeholder.txt files are only needed to keep the CVS folders alive (in the development repository on sourceforge). They are not needed for the program to work. But the folders where this files were in are needed!
If you download the zip you will find this folders empty. This is OK and must be so on your server too.

Re: Updated Quick Guide
Let me get this right.
placeholder.txt is not the name of a UserAvatars folder; it is the name of a file in the folder; however, this text file is not required to be in the folder as indicated by the fact that it is not included in the zip file ?

If the file is not required, what is the reason for its permissions being 666 rather than 644 ?

If all this is moot, what is required to get the QuickGuide updated to remove the reference to placeholder.txt to avoid unnecessary questions for all future installations.
