    Hello guys,

    I am trying to install VBulletin on my website in the /httpdocs directory. No , subdomain , no domain.com/forum.

    I am getting this error when trying to run http://mydomain.com/install/install.php

    This is the error :

    Warning: chdir(): No such file or directory (errno 2) in C:\Inetpub\vhosts\mydomain.com\httpdocs\install\install.php on line 17

    Warning: main(./install/installcore.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\Inetpub\vhosts\mydomain.com\httpdocs\install\install.php on line 69

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required './install/installcore.php' (include_path='.;./includes;./pear') in C:\Inetpub\vhosts\mydomain.com\httpdocs\install\install.php on line 69

    Any ideas how to fix this problem?
    Please don't tell me to install VBulletin on a directory like : mydomain.com/forums, I tried this and it works just fine.

    but I am planing to run my forums in the /httpdocs mydomain.com

    Please help.

    regards,
    Henry

    solution

    I solved the problem by adding the same credentials to the folder above httpdoc. Normally you change subfolder permissions, but I guess not in this case. Not a nice and secure solution to the problem, but it got my site going :)
    I guess it's a Windows / IIS issue. Hope it works for you.

    Regards,
    Jonas

    Hi!

    I was unable to check my settings earlier, so I was unable to post reply until now.

    What to do:

    Browse to your subdomain's httpdocs-folder. Properties on that one, security then add your Plesk IIS User with write permission.

    Hello Jonas,

    I am tying to install VBulletin NOT in to a subdomain. I am trying to install it in the main httpdocs folder of my forums.com domain.

    Please let me know.

    Regards
    Henry

    sri, I read your post a bit to fast.

    Normally you change permission on the httpdocs-folder for web access, but when installing in root folder of your web you need to change the credentials on the folder above.

    For example:

    You have a nice domain called:
    www.mydomain.com

    That one is located in:
    c:\inetpub\vhosts\mydomain.com\B]httpdocs[/B]

    httdocs in this case have credentials that allow anonymous internet users to access it (IUSR).

    What you need to do is allow the IUSR-account access to:
    c:\inetpub\vhosts\mydomain

    That folder is not a webfolder, but don't blame me, blame microsoft and vbulletin ;)

    oh, the same procedure goes for you if you ever want to install it in a subdomain :)

    Hope this information solves your issues with vbulletin.

    ps
    If it does, could give me some performance feedback on vbulletin attachment download speeds from server? Asking since I get +500K/s for a single from web root, but vbulleting attachment system only gives 80-100K/s. Please try that and get back to me.
