  • Another question about compatibility

    I ran the "check if your site will work with phpbb" script, and it failed the open_basedir check.

    The description, "you may experience problems uploading files" doesn't help very much. What will be necessary to make this work once installed?

    Also, the magic_quotes_gpc test failed. What is this? The advice is to try go get my isp to change the setting. What if I can't?

    Thanks.

    That depends on your server. If your host is cooperative then you will be able to get attachments to work.

    The magic_quotes issues is not important. In fact it should be removed from that test in my opnion.

        I can't be more specific. That depends on the server. Sorry I didn't make that clear.

        In general though the host may have to disable open_basedir, and/or they will have to create a directory on the server that is chmod'd to 1777 and set the appropriate php.ini settings for open_basedir and upload_tmp_dir to that directory.
