What it didn't like was putting the new entry script in the old "board" folder, which contains all the 5.12 stuff. So I put the new entry script in a brand new folder and it worked. I just need to clarify the next step before screwing something up. I've read this several times but I just want to make sure.
SECOND, move all data from your old forums into their new locations:
all old message data (the /bbs subfolders) goes to the folder defined in $data_subdir
Make sure all /bbs subfolders are chmod 777 and all message files are chmod 766
I'm not sure what it means by the /bbs subfolders. I have a folder called "board" which contains the folders of messages named bbs0, bbs1, bbs2, etc., the countlist, messagelist, data.txt, searchterms.idx,dupecheck.txt, words.txt, etc. etc. Is this all considered "/bbs subfolders" or am I just to move the message folders (bbs0, bbs1, bbs2)?
I'm thinking it's just the message folders. Correct?
