No Gizmo, I didn't do that....the only thing is, I don't really know what that means. I'm a total noob. How do I 'chmod 755'? Thanks for your quick response mate.

Well, you do that in your FTP client, when you right click a file it should have a "chmod" option...

You really should hire someone to modify things for you if you're not sure how to do it tipsy

Yeah probably should, but then again I've been able to do everything else up til now. Just a little out of practice. Never had to mess with chmod though. I feel like I'm 95% of the way there now.

Alright, so I chmodded everything to 777. Same issue.

They don't need to be 777, they need to be 755... Incorrect permissions WILL give failures...

OK, scratch that, when I do change the permissions to 777, I get an internal server error. When I change them back, I get the 404 error. I'm not sure which route puts me on the right track.

The thing is, all I can do is get 744, 766, or 777. I've got 3 sets of 3 check-boxes for owner, group, & other. No combination gets me to 755.

Also, I'm just setting the permissions for the whole public folder. Is that OK?

That gives me 766.

I did notice that it's only when 'Other' has 'execute' checked that the error switches from "no permissions on this server" to "internal server error". I can play around with all the other permissions and nothing changes.

Here is a snapshot of settings for 755

Also you might want to double check the file itself for 755

That gives me 747. 3 checboxes = 7, 2 = 6, & 1 box = 4 on the ftp program I'm using. Maybe I should use a newer program?

Also, where am I supposed to be pointing to with the url/path in the cp? I know you told me to check my paths in the CP. But am I supposed to be pointing to the cgi-bin or non cgi-bin?

You had suggested it may be in cgi-bin/ubb but there is no ubb folder in the cgi-bin.

I'm pretty sure that's not the problem because I've tried several different things and it's still the same. Just wanted to be sure.

I am using filezilla for a ftp program it works very well and it is free online. Another thing with this program you can just type in 755 instead of checking each box
What program are you using to change the file settings?

And here is a question I should have asked from the beginning.
Is your server windows or linux?
Because you can't change the permissions using the method you have been with windows.


okay then what is the path to ultimatebb.cgi
It all depends on where you installed it.

That should be pretty much where you placed the uploader file.
If it is, then just copy the path in the main section for the board and place it in the new section in the control panel you added for the uploader options.

the new control panel options should only be talking about itself per-say. So you should point it to where the uploader is at.

How would I know about the server, call up my host?

I've been using ws_ftp, probably more than 10 years old. It tells me the permissions usually only apply to 'unix' or something. But if the permissions changes were not being applied, would my error messages still be changing based on how I set them?

I used the same program for years. One problem I found is sometimes it does not show the new permission changes until you close the program and reopen it.
And I used it on windows and linux.
My version was about 10 years old and it was free at the time. and with it you should be able to set the permission just like I said.

Unix is pretty much the same a linux. Meaning not windows

On windows it would accept your changes but nothing changed.
One of the reasons I like filezilla also is I can type the number in and also select multiple items to change.

As far as what you have some times your path can be a clue.
Usually linux paths will be like home\public\bla bla
Windows will be like f:\\home\bla bla
but you should either be able to look in your server control panel or I guess call your host.

If you wish. Send me a PM with a logon to your site for ftp and I can check the file permission for you. It would be quicker for me.

I really think you have transposed your permission settings.
Here is a site with a video using a newer version of wsftp but I believe the dialog box should match and the example is for 755 but it is near the end of the video.
Go HERE
On the left expand Upload Your Site With FTP
Then expand WS FTP
select Manage Files
At the end is a example for setting to 755
Just remember it is for a different version wsftp

I just wanted to thank Ruben again and let everyone know what a class act you guys have here. Part of the solution involved substituting the windows server version of the ubb_upload.cgi file, even though I'm on a unix server. I would've never figured that out, so without his help it would've happened.

From my members and myself, thank you Ruben. Even if you never post, you'll always be an honorary member.
