    Under /chat there is a data folder already and it is set to 777 ..... is there supposed to be one somewhere else? create another by a different name?

    Not sure where the /data directory should be but it looks like it should be at the root.

    Try putting a data directory in the following places one at a time to see where it wants the directory.

    collectorplanet.com/data/
    collectorplanet.com/forum/data/
    collectorplanet.com/forum/chat/data/

    It would be one of those three places its looking.

    I tried those and it did not work .... There already is a data folder inside /chat.

    However, when i create a folder do i have to put in these three files?

    .htaccess
    log
    usr


    because the /data folder that is already there, under /chat, has these 3 files under it ....

    So when i create a new data folder must i add those 3 files?

    Let me know.

    thanks again,
