Hi, the server my board is hosted on was experiencing some problems yesterday and my installation is now somewhere wasted. However before i reinstall the board I'd like to try fixing it, most of the problems I've managed to solve ok. However when I'm installing themes i get the following error:

2: fopen(): SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 32175 is not allowed to access /home/micro/public_html/forum/Themes/xtSMF owned by uid 99
File: /home/micro/public_html/forum/Sources/Subs-Package.php
Line: 1476

Could anyone tell me what this means and if possible how to sort it?




That means that your host has Safe Mode enabled in PHP, which prevents scripts from accessing other scripts or directories that don't have the same uid. Your uid is 32175, while the uid of the theme directory is 99 ("nobody"). Easiest way to install themes is to extract the entire package to your computer, upload everything to that xtSMF directory and then use the "install from a directory" feature instead. The package manager won't work with Safe Mode enabled either.
