Ok, this is terrible.

Anyway, got all permission set, etc. Opened up the URL for Setup.pl - so far so good box came up asking for user name, got in, tried without absolute path and then got internal server error 500 - went back and pressed the insert absolute path and fill in, and pressed submit and still got the error 500.

Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong please? I have to get this right today as our forum has been down for three days.

I am discouraged.

Going through troubleshoot. I think perl paths are fine as is as here is info from server about perl path:

Unix/FreeBSD servers
Perl        /usr/bin/perl
Sendmail    /usr/sbin/sendmail
TCL         /usr/local/bin/tcl
Python      /usr/local/bin/python
PHP4        /hsphere/shared/php4/bin/php
PHP5        /hsphere/shared/php5/bin/php
date        /bin/date
grep        /usr/bin/grep
ImageMagick /usr/local/bin/
NetPBM      /usr/local/bin/
Home dir  /hsphere/local/home/<account_name>/

so that seems fine, correct me if wrong.

Now will go through next step. Any suggestions let me know.

Let me ask this also: While I was setting chmod permissions on directories - there are two that had nothing in them and therefore I could not set them.

I did this set 755 for yabb2 Backups
but it says to chmod 666 for files inside but there are none
also 755 for Variables but there are not files inside to chmod 666.

these are the only two where I did not complete the chmod, would that hav anything to do with it?

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

I hope every thing works out.
I was trying to upgrade from 1.4
and the same thing happed at first
after converting (500) error. I found
that there were requires that had bad
files. If all else fails you might wont to
open and look at this
http://www.yabbforum.com/yabbfiles/Attachments/YaBB1.PNG

It may be something with my server only.

Good luck!

Like the original poster, I am looking to pay someone for help upgrading a 1.3.1 YaBB forum.  I hope this is not against forum rules.  Thanks.
