Hi All and thanks for the prompt replies,  Smiley

Let me tell you what I've done so far...

I downloaded Yabb 2.5 AE (I've just done it again to check) and for example there's no Time folder in Modules (and the rest don't exist either). I've checked that I've got the show hidden files option on. Am I missing something basic here?

Thanks again,

Ludek  Cool

PS I know my host sucks, the annoying thing is this nonsense with the permissions is new - I did it quite happily with the last install.  Sad

And just to clarify - those files have to be uploaded through FTP or a file manager - not through YaBB's admin center. (And considering the trouble you're going through, I would run to a new hosting service. If they don't think you're competent to handle basic file permissions, how soon before they decide you're not competent to have Perl programs running at all?)



and also as Dandello pointed out its time to get a new host out of interest who is your host?

Missing files on upload
Jul 12th, 2012 at 8:37pm
There are no actions to perform.
Hello All,

I've had an account with a particularly c****y web host for a few years now (too lazy to change I'm afraid). This year they offered me what sounded like a much better deal so like a (lazy) mug I signed up again.

What I didn't realise is that as part of the deal my old Yabb install and web site required deletion and I've now got to upload everything to a completely new server.

No great problems except that they've now decided as part of my new deal that I'm not allowed to change permissions myself and every request has to go through their support.

When I uploaded the latest Yabb and requested the permission changes they emailed back to say certain files were missing. They were:

chmod: cannot access `cgi-bin/yabb2/Modules/Digest/Perl': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `cgi-bin/yabb2/Modules/Digest/Perl/MD5.pm': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `cgi-bin/yabb2/Modules/Time': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `cgi-bin/yabb2/Modules/Time/HiRes.pm': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `cgi-bin/yabb2/Modules/Upload': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `cgi-bin/yabb2/Modules/Upload/CGI.pm': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `cgi-bin/yabb2/Modules/Upload/CGI': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access `cgi-bin/yabb2/Modules/Upload/CGI/Util.pm': No such file or directory

I had a look around the forum and my understanding is that if I can get the site up then I can go into 'Admin' and use a tool to identify and install these. Is this correct?

If not is there an easy way I can supply these files to the web host so I can finally get my new Yabb install working.

Many thanks for any help you can offer.
