I would have to say most of what I see above is simply incorrect answers give on install except issue 2. Your cookie prefix you did not enter on install and it would appear you did not enter the correct directory name on install.
Issue 2 is something more complex as your most likely using some custom stylesheet. We only autorewrite normal from standard vbulletin url strings. I can give you a slight mod to our file to rewrite that custom style to through it into the autorewrite.
Don't forget to give me the custom style sheet directory name and I can show you how to mod the header-inc.php file to autorewrite those relative paths.
The path would be MB/rogue/
I have edited some of the line links actually in the header manually within the style so it is usable but I am still having a hard time getting the images to show up correctly in the reply and post text box. It keeps appending the directory at the end..
For each new gallery, etc does it create a 501, 502, etc? I ask because I now have a 501. I am assuming I have to CHMOD them as they are created if that is the case?
No. To explain... when you install YOU creat the data directory and subdirectories 1 and 2. YOU own them. The webserver is running as a different user... i.e. the webserver is not you. Therefore the webserver does not own the data directory and it's subdirectorie. By CHMODing them to 777 you're granting permission for any user on the server, including the webserver, to write to those directories. Once this permission is granted then the webserver can create subdirectories. Because it creates those directories itself then it can write to them. You'll find that you CAN'T write to them because you don't own them.
I guess I was a sucker. Reading installation. You people contradict your manual many times. Is this a form of getting people to have you install? I suggest that your installation manul be upgraded. For now I think I just might submit this to www.Ripoffreport.com
All permissions for .php and .sql files should be set to chmod 644, except for config-inc.php and config-int.php which need to be 777 for the install script to update it. In your stylesheets and templates directory you will need to change the files .css and .tmpl to also have write permissions so any modifications done through the admin can be updated.
Maybe that could be confusing. Seems to me it is. Oh and what is it when you click install I get $message error?
another example would be to change our autorewrite code to look for your custom style. I am going to assume it is a directory called rogue under your images directory of vbulletin. In this case edit header-inc.php and replace the code noted here with this
