Does anyone know how to put the line

fill to 666

Into the config.php file so that phpbb will work on a linux server?

Also the config.php file doesn't come with the download. Woul the following code work as the phpbb file?

<?php
// phpBB 3.0.x auto-generated configuration file
// Do not change anything in this file!
$dbms = 'mysql';
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbport = '';
$dbname = 'YOURDBNAME';
$dbuser = 'YOURDBUSER';
$dbpasswd = 'YOURDBPASSWORD';

$table_prefix = 'phpbb_';
$acm_type = 'file';
$load_extensions = '';

@define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);
// @define('DEBUG', true);
// @define('DEBUG_EXTRA', true);
?>

That ia the version I downloaded and it has a blank file for the config file.

Do you know anything about the fill 666 business? It is probably something so simple the the explaination is left out?

I had a quick look in their forum and it sounds to me that you should upload that blank config.php as it is, chmod (set permission) the file to 666 and the installer will fill the config.php with the necessary information during the installation.

For an explanation on how to set permissions, please see the All about FTP tutorial.
