  • Eliana Tamerin: That may have faded away now, or gotten better. I hope so. I see a lot of happy phpBB users, so I have to imagine someone is having success.

  • Eliana Tamerin: @andy, the phpBB folks had (at one point, not sure how it is now) a specific set of rules you had to follow to get support. Anyone not found doing so would have their topic ignored.

  • andy: Yes they are difficult to deal with at SMF. I never experienced anybody like that at phpbb several years ago.

  • Maizono: Their team is very antagonistic and I prefer this forum and this staff far more. So kudos to SP for doing it right.

  • andy: When SMF went gold there was a lot of optimism about progress and talk of 3.0.  Five years on and that soulds like SF.

  • andy: Just my frustration at the slow pace of SMF. I suppose we have an alternative now.

  • Burke Knight: Andy, as long as the SMF team keeps like they are doing, there's always going to be bugs, mainly due to SMF issues, because the team can't get their stuff straight.

Another FTP Required question..
« on: February 05, 2013, 03:16:29 am »
I'm trying to install Simple Portal 2.3.5 on a freshly upgraded SMF 2.0.4 install; this will be the first mod I install as usual.

I made the permissions changes to all the directories and files as specified in the other posts.  I seem to recall the last time I had this issue was because /Packages/temp did not exist.  In this case, the temp folder did not exist again.  I created it and did the CHMOD 777 on the folder successfully.  Then, when I hit refresh in the Packages folder, I see that the temp folder I just created and CHMOD'ed is gone!  I'm using iPage as my host.. do you think this is something they're doing on their end?  None of the other directories I create disappear.

I'll chat with the iPage support folks too.. If you think this is the reason I'm getting prompted for FTP info, please let me know.

The SMF Package Manager often deletes the temp folder after completing an install.
So it would not be surprising if it disappeared after an install.

It would be surprising if it disappeared BEFORE you used package manager.

If the SMF package manager finds itself unable to create the temp folder, it will try to change permission to give itself the ability to do so.  But I don't have the information to tell you any more.

I don't know if ipage uses suphp or suexec.  If you haven't already done so, please read http://simpleportal.net/index.php?action=docs;area=solving_install_problems for more on the issue of  some hosts don't allow 777 permissions on folders.
