I am getting this message in the client area when I want to perform an automatic upgrade of ipb:
PHP on your server does not have permission to write to the directory you have chosen to upgrade the IPS Community Suite into. This is necessary in order to unzip the files after we upload them. Please contact your hosting provider to ask for permissions to be updated appropriately - normally CHMOD 0755 is acceptable.
Now I login via shell and run the command:
chmod 755 forums/
or / and
chmod 0755 forums/
- I thought that would be what I was supposed to do. Seems like it's not, as I still receive that error message from the auto-upgrade tool.
