Title: Why does the installer give me so many errors about opening files?
Post by: Joseph Fung on December 18, 2001, 09:32:29 AM
The most likely reason for this is that your host is running in safe mode (most free hosts do).  These hosts need to use the safe-mode installer which is available at http://www.yabb.info/downloads.php

The deault installer upacks a yabb archive into file, which (because of the safe-mode restrictrions) can't be opened for editing in the later steps.

The safe-mode installer requires you to upload the already unpacked files before processing the rest of the install.

Some hosts that run in safe mode are:
http://www.spaceports.com
http://www.f2s.com
http://www.coolfreepages.com
http://www.jaguarpc.com (only some servers)

multimania.com should be added to the "safe mode" list
I guess that that is the only other drawback to it.

Hello all,
 I am also getting a lot of errors while running install.php.  The errors I get are "Permission Denied" type of errors.  My server is not in safe mode (according to phpinfo.php).  I am on a Windows 2k server so I can't CHMOD.  I enabled web sharing and/or normal sharing but still get the errors.  Any ideas ?

Thanks a LOT for your help.
