SMF Support > SMF 1.1.x Support

turning off all automatic email transmisions ?

Sorry, I was thinking of SMF v1, when I typed that.

You want Admin>Packages>OPTIONS.

Look at the "Cleanup Permissions" section, at the bottom.

You want "Only the standard files are writable."

Once you click "Change file permissions", expect the page to hang, for a while, as the permissions propagate through.

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

so .... what do we do now ?

That, for me, is a bug in that version of SMF. "Standard" always shows checked, there, even if it isn't the way it's set. Until you hit "Change file permissions", you can't be sure. (Silly, huh?)

As for the error you're getting, have you one as suggested and checked the server error logs?

You can see them by going to your site's CPanel (If you have that) and looking at (Believe it or not) "Logs" section, where you'll see "Error log"..

as soon as I hit > " change file permisions " ..... I get

In most cases, the "Local path to SMF:" is simply "/public_html".

But, from what I've seen, that htdocs thing is different and I'm not sure what it would be, for you. I believe that means that you're on a Windows server, rather than an Apache one.

You might get some joy, with that, if you ask your host.
