You'll get better help, King, if you post in the mod's support topic, because they'll know a lot more about how the mod's coded, there.

it may be related to your file permissions if you have a linux server. have you tried to reset file permissions? admin -> package manager -> file permissions you can use a predefined permission profile if you dont know what do to here

Then can you suggest any good host which supports smf and is free
Title: Re: Mod Problem
Post by: Illori on May 18, 2011, 06:35:21 AM
you can check the hosting board, there is a list of free hosts there as well. but no host actually supports smf, they will just provide the hosting for you to use.
Title: Re: Mod Problem
Post by: King N on May 18, 2011, 06:36:46 AM
Thats true
Would they support mods too
Title: Re: Mod Problem
Post by: Illori on May 18, 2011, 06:37:38 AM
if configured correctly it should not be a problem but the above statement applies here as well.

I'll make a test account there, see what happens.

By the way, i use this free host and have no issues:

i just tried to upload a zip to ueuo, its very, very slow and timed out before it uploaded.

The host i linked to uses cpanel and is faster.

By the way, free hosts are ok to start with, to get to know your way around and learn stuff, they are very rarely, if ever, suitable for anything more than that.
