      It sounds like an issue with Plesk restricting what you can/can't do on the server. For some reason it is blocking vB's access to the UBB data files.

      Is it a dedicated server (ie one that you have root access to)?

        Yes it's a dedicated server RH7.1 with plesk and yes I've the root access.

        What should I do?

          Christ I hate Plesk it's very very evil:

          I think that james is correct about plesk stopping you:

          My thoughts


          Create a directory on your server called import and copy all the UBB files there (cp -r * /path/to new dir) then chmod them all 777 (chmod 777 *) and change ownership (chown -r usrname:group *) then try the import

            You mean all the files in CGI-BIN or NON-CGI?

                    OK I have read through the other thread and PLesk seems to be a real problem:

                    It might be less grief to do the following
                    • tar and gzip up the ubb files
                    • download them locally
                    • do the import on your local machine or test enviroment
                    • do a dump from the test enviorment
                    • import into the production vb

                      It fixed now.

                      This is what I've done.
                      1. Create a directory call import in httpdocs directory.
                      2. Copy the entire ubbcgi files from cgi-bin directory to import directory
                      3. chmod -R 777 import
                      4. chown -R yourusernameleskcln import


                      is actualy : p join together, but somehow vBulletin display it as
