Hi CdK! Yes, yet another nuisance thing going on.
First and foremost, the board is operating in a stable manner, avatars are back, and I'm open for business, ergo I am a happy camper!
Thanks again for ALL of your help!
Now I am in "tweak" mode - trying to get some of the bugs out.
I will dete the fm admin files - once powerweb is stable - it's a horror show today.
i don't think that has anything to do with the ip logger though - but based on avatars, i'm wondering if the fm code mucked things around.
anyway, i had previously been able to log the ips, and i think it's useful to see when/if google crawls, etc.
anyway, the iplogger is misbehaving, i think since i deleted the logged ips.
i have since made sure the admin sub is 755, the data sub is 777, i was able to zip the ips (i.e. a zip of a 0 file) and then i unzipped it on my desktop and uploaded the unzipped file (binary, 0 bytes) in an attempt to allow modifying a file, versus file creation. no luck.
the server test claims my server does not allow writing - although the server previously had. any thoughts?
