    Default PHPBB & Avatar Permissions

    I am setting up a PHPBB and in the install instructions at their site it says I should make sure the server has allow write permissions so people can upload their avatars, how do i do this here at Wets Host.

    More then likely you won't have to do anything. That being said both the older WestHost Site Manager accounts and the newer cPanel accounts have file managers available when you log into them. I could give you more details on that if you told me which you have. http://kb.westhost.com/questions/103...nel+hosting%3F You can also use a FTP program to log in and do it. http://kb.westhost.com/questions/754...s+%22FTP%22%3F

    Again you shouldn't really have to set permissions on either account unless you do something odd when you install PHPBB.

    Oh also PHPBB has a great article on permissions and what they should be and how to do it via FTP. https://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/php...d-permissions/
