Thanks, also some good pointers there. I love comments and love colors. If someone looked at books I read before the internet was commonplace they would swear I was the one who developed color coding of code that is now widely used. My wife has laughed at me for decades on my incessant use of highlighters when I read/study. She thinks it's funny how virtually every line is highlighted. She sees using highlighters (the way most people do) as a method to highlight importance whereas I see using coloration and highlighting as a method of organizing thought.

I did follow the upgrade guide on permissions. It may be that initial clone however had permission issues not directly related to the upgrade permissions. 

I initially tried the zip/unzip method similar to what you described but still had issues. I do not understand why but sometimes direct file transfers work better. I have been told that intelligent FTP programs can sometimes better understand when a file needs to be transferred in binary mode, which can have an impact on permissions. My site's are rather large and have tons of user generated content so this of course does have the drawback of elongated file transfer times, which I am in the middle of now. If it however corrects the perceived permission problem then the time lost (while doing other tasks in the meantime) will be more than made up for on the savings used to troubleshoot.

Killing the site for even a short period of time could have a significant financial impact on my income.

If it was me...I would go to the source which in this case would be phpfox.  It may cost you, but hopefully, it would be a lot less than what you would lose if attempting to do it by yourself and then have to hire them to fix any issues later.

Turned out it was a server issue with an upgrade. They initially denied it was due to a server upgrade. Not saying this was intentional as they have never intentionally misled me. I was able to determine it based on a full code compare across multiple backups.

i think this might be a bug.. go here: https://github.com/PHPfox-Official/phpfox-v4-issues/issues


I read there is a bug posting some youtube videos where the links dont show and other issues they still working on a fix.. this is another area where you can actually see what others found as a bug and you can signup for free if not already to report bugs or see if an issue your having is related to someone elses report and to see if its a bug or they wil help you get the answer :)

The videos are definitely either my videos or ones I would have the rights to. I just want to reduce all the clutter of YouTube and use it to enhance my user experience using my own material but using YT as the video host server. I have seen it done elsewhere but just do not understand the process and how easily (or more likely how more complicated) the process is to invoke. I am at the basic level of coding experience.

I added back my old .htaccess file, which ip bans all of China and since then I have not had any more such signups. I was surprised how within just a few hours, while I was working on other aspects of the site I had over 150 spam accounts setup. I will also check the knowledgebase if I continue to have issues. Thanks Data.

I am using 3.6 build 6 and tried to upload to max 3mb, anything more than 1.5mb and the pic does not upload, I do not get a fault but with the uploader it shows the image name in green after 100% upload, in the standard uploader it leaves a read bar at the top without text to describe the fault.
