Execute the following commands with your shell terminal but change the text of user_name to your actual shell terminal user name.

Code: [Select]
chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/main

Code: [Select]
usermod -a -G www-data user_name

Code: [Select]
chmod 770 -R /var/www/main

If that still does not work then find the path of your temp folder from within your php.ini file (ensure the line for it is not commented out).
Ensure that folder exists at the appropriate path (create it if necessary) and then apply the above commands to that temp path as well.

Still getting the same result, also tried fiddling with php safemode, no change in either state.

Always attempt to reset apache after making any changes.
Code: [Select]
/sbin/service httpd restart

running /etc/init.d/apache2 restart after every change.

At this point I am not quite sure what the issue is.
I can have a look if you want to temporarily grant me both shell root access and SMF admin access.
If you wish to use that route then PM me the necessary info.
Though for the moment I will be away from the computer for approx. 1 - 1.5 hrs.

Regards.

Sent via PM. if possible just ring the system bell when you show up, I'll hear it.
meanwhile, I'm going to be opportunistic and take your away time to go beat the loving hell out of some things in FireFall to vent a little.

See you soon. and Thanks.

If you understand where the error is PLEASE post it Underdog, I am really interested into it as well.
Have you tried SimplePortal Documentation before asking? ;)

korelabs,

Imo the previous ownership & permission settings fixed the issue and the cache just needed to be cleared.
For me the cache files were fresh. Just use the SMF maintenance to clear the cache and then clear your browser history.
After that attempt to install mods now.

Regards.

♦ Ninja ZX-10RR ♦,

  As I said prior, your issue is most likely the .htaccess file that the forum firewall adds which is causing an issue.
Assuming you are using Apache2, this can be possibly caused by your Apache2 configuration not allowing .htaccess to override the directory/file allowance.

ref. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingUseOfApacheHtaccessFiles

Ensure AllowOverride is set to all as instructed from that link.

Regards.

Simple Portal installed just fine with no issue.

Marking it as solved then, unless there are any logs or steps I should post specific to my system to help any future onlookers?

I guess Underdog pretty much explained it... Hell I won't ask my host because I am just in the process of changing it (moving to BurkeKnight's webhost), but I will try again there. If I get errors I'll ask him to have a look at that procedure. Thank you so much Underdog, I spent MONTHS trying to figure that out in co-operation with the mod author and at no avail. Now that I probably know what the issue is then I'm very happy with it.

korelabs yeah I guess you can mark it as solved since Underdog installed SP :P
