    As I said in the other thread you have on this subject, if PHP is running as CGI you also need to chmod the file to whatever your host recommends, most likely 755.

    Also while you can certainly try the backup option in the Admin CP, please note that the most reliable method of backing up your forums is through shell access via telnet or ssh. This is because backing up with a PHP script like that in the Admin CP can result in timeouts errors and an incomplete backup file. The recommended backup procedure is explained in Step One on this page:

    Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

      I will try the CHMOD thing now, and tell you how it goes. Thanks!
