Hmmm thought I had fixed that one.  Ok the link is fixed now.
In the web installer or the link itself? the link itself don't work.. Haven't tried the web installer yet..

--Edit--
Tried web installer

im using dreamhost

initial running of the webinstall seemed to be fine however when it finished it took me to the folder I had specified

and all it contained were the Themes folder and inside were the themes babylon clasic and default and thats all

I ran it again - same results

any idea why?

PS: folder permissions were at 777 and everything is set as stated in 1st post - all details double checked but it only extracts the themes folder (i tried a 3rd time)

Sleepy you'll need to grab a new copy of webinstall to see the fix.

akulion:  the files that were created, were they valid files or not?

Hmmm looks like FTP didn't upload it then.  Ok I reuploaded it and made sure it was showing the correct info

I received an odd error messsage as the forum was upgrading:

Upgrading...
Updating ban system... Unsuccessful!

This query:
SELECT mem.ID_MEMBER, mem.is_activated + 10 AS new_value
FROM (smf_ban_groups AS bg, smf_ban_items AS bi, smf_members AS mem)
WHERE bg.ID_BAN_GROUP = bi.ID_BAN_GROUP
AND bg.cannot_access = 1
AND (bg.expire_time IS NULL OR bg.expire_time > 1165079936)
AND (mem.ID_MEMBER = bi.ID_MEMBER OR mem.emailAddress LIKE bi.email_address)
AND mem.is_activated < 10;

Caused the error:
Table 'billsbur_smf1.smf_ban_groups' doesn't exist

I have not banned anyone that I can think of, is that causing this?

Just as a note, the upgrading part isn't actually part of the webinstall.

From the error it looks like the table smf_ban_groups didn't get created.  Can you try running upgrade.php again and see if the table gets created.

akulion:  the files that were created, were they valid files or not?

the only folder that contained anything was the default folder - and that only contained images and nothing else - no php files or otherwise created except images in default theme folder

PS: i doing a full package install right now via FTP but ill keep an eye on the webinstaller

The file that you get from the download page is using the correct URL which goes to an available page.  Perhaps firefox is caching the file instead of downloading a new one.

Ahh.. you were right.. I wasn't aware that Firefox cached downloads.. hmm.
Ok.. Guess my Inferior browser needs a bug report..  ;D Nothing should cache downloads..

Odd this is not working on Site 5 hosting, I have tried a plethora of different  CH Mod settings, when I go to the step where it downloads the files it brings me to a download page for the webinstall.php file.

I tried setting up Webinstall and can't get past the ftp connect step:
Unable to connect to FTP server with this combination of details.

All Access is LOGGED

I used ftp.greatlakesbass.com as my server with port 21.

I used the same username and password I always do when I ftp files to my web site. I tried the default setting in the mod 0664 and tried 755, but still don't get past this step.

The installed path was automatically detected as /forum which it is /www/forum.

Am I missing something obvious or do I have an external issue?Thanks.

Just this:
"Unable to connect to FTP server with this combination of details.

All Access is LOGGED "

I can connect with my FTP client using the same settings.

tried to upgrade from 1.1rc3 to 1.1, but couldn't... :(
script said that it had downloaded files, extracted them and than just redirected me to the board list, version still 1.1rc3

Webinstall expects a 200 response which means things are ok.  It appears that your server is giving another reponse prior to the 200 response.

That does not surprise me. I will have to look into it with Omnis.com later since I don't know enough about those kinds of things. Don't know if they could or would change it. I'll upgrade the 'old-fashioned' way. Thanks for the responses.

Don't know if this helps with anything - here's what I get when I use my FTP client:
