Ask away, sir!

Here's another nugget, for what it's worth: I can make changes to members (add, delete, promote, etc.) and changes to the forum settings in the top category, and those all save just fine.

I ran into this error in a mod, too. It's the advertising mod that lets you add ads in between posts in the forum. If I try to save some ad code, I get the access error. However, if I save some random text like "awfneiorvnerv" in the box, it lets me save that.

Should I get in contact with the server folks and see what's going on?

ok i have been doing some tests with the yabb system copy on my test server and with a new yabb 2.4 on your host

your yabb system copy on my test server works as it should be

the new yabb 2.4 on your host i setup and then moved to my test server works as it should be

but both your forum and the test i setup on your host
keep returning
Quote:
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/yabb2/AdminIndex.pl on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

when i go to save a Template Configuration so i have tried different combinations and no luck at all so for me this is a host issue but i will ask some questions and also ask for more input to this as well and i'm shore we can get this sorted for you soon as we can.

The mods should be okay. It's been a 2.4 forum the whole time. I just tried the other day to upgrade to 2.5 hoping that would fix the issue.

@xnoddyx: Wasn't there an issue with someone a while back that a wildcard got into a Guardian or banned list in Settings.pl and fubarred things?

yer i remember that as well with the copy from the yabb system files and default Boards, Members, Messages from the YaBB_2.4.zip and a clean Settings.pl the test seems good so i am going to try the clean Settings.pl and use the default CHMOD for the files and test agen
one item to note is that most of the main system files are YaBB 2.4 but

YaBB.pl is YaBB 2.5 AE Build 1.22.2.4 and AdminIndex.pl is YaBB 2.5 AE Build 1.27.2.2
so this maybe of some concern as well.

as to the version miss match what do you want me to do on this?.

I set it up just like my main one is setup... Man, I'm just falling apart over this. LOL  Undecided

ok i see what may be a prob with Settings.pl with the ip bans and the email bans but still working on this i setup a test on your host here and its working fine http://www.midohiospeakeasy.com/cgi-bin/yabbt/YaBB.pl
so just have to see what is up with your main forum i have copied over the main yabb2 files to test your forum files on my test server not members or that just the system files and will post back when i have more info for you.

Thanks for the info. Could I try removing the .htaccess files to test that theory, or would that mess things up?

I'm also getting a 500 on the main YaBB page.

I am coming to the conclusion that your host is messing you up. (Have you talked to them? While I'm not a strong server person, I do know that if things like folder ownership gets messed up, the FTP doesn't work properly and it can kabosh file and folder permissions. That part I can attest to personally.)

What I'm saying is if the second install actually went in properly and you're on a *nix/Apache server, YaBB should work. If it isn't working, then something is wrong on the server/host side. Possibly with an .htaccess file in the root that's misconfigured, possibly something more complex.
