Unable to open ./Variables/cook.txt

I'm trying to install v2.4 on Perl version : 5.008007 (don't know how to find the Apache version). I'm putting the contents of cgi-bin directly in the /forum/ folder where I want the boards to appear, hoping to eliminate a little bit of the nesting. All my permissions are set correctly. When I try to run Setup.pl through the browser, the full error I get is:

Unable to open ./Variables/cook.txt: Invalid argument

Any suggestions what I did wrong? Thanks.

Try changing the permissions from 755 to 777 in the yabb2 subfolders

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Got it. For some reason I wasn't able to edit permissions myself so I had my admin change it to 777 and it worked great.

And thanks for the link. I did searches and couldn't find the answer. Cross-posting helps greatly!
