    Exclamation Form Maker Pro Install help needed

    OK--probably a REALLY dumb question, but in step #4 of the Installation instructions for Form Maker Pro, it says: "chmod the the entire fmp folder to 755 unless you are on teh voda2 server IP 70.86.30.66 you will chmod the the entire fmp folder to to 777"

    What does "chmod" mean and how do I do it?

    Thanks in advance for your help!
    Believe and you will achieve!

    you can do it from ftp or file manager control panel.
    log to your public_html using Blue FTP>choose the file you want to chmod>click properties>you will see the permission field where you can set chmod

    can you tell me why do i recive ' SCUõžRxœc```fpcdàd nô ' when i www.mysite.com.fmp/install.php from ny browser? Vodahost Support told me to delete all files i had uploaded to public_html/fmp, the entire fmp folder, and files contained in it. Does one have to upload only install.php file or all file inside fmp folder? what about other folders inside fmp?

    Just upload the entire fmp folder and make sure you follow the chmod instructions. NOTE: when running the install, don't forget the slash - mysite.com/fmp/install.php.

    Hi everyone

    I don't think that was a dumb question at all. I can't even find the Form maker install files. It is supposed to be in the Treasure Chest area of the Support Forum. There seems to be no such thing. Help please.

    You need a password and the appropriate link. If you are a VH customer please submit a support ticket and your password, to download the Form Maker pro, will be sent to you.

    Default I may have goofed the form maker install

    I was following the instructions on installing the form maker and it was going fine until I came across the CHMOD instruction. Well, I just did a drag and drop for the folder into the public_html directory and it worked. There is now a folder in that directory named FMP and has what appears to be all the files I need, Using the browser, I followed the instructions to install. I received the following error:

    Template error - set_root:tpl is not a directory.

    I hope this means something to someone. To me it means I should have found out where the CHMOD command was. Any assistance on how to fix this would be greatly apprecieated.

    Blue FTP has a bad habit: it DOES NOT upload all the files, when you drag the whole directory. Please check folder by folder to see if all files are uploaded. To change the permissions of the folder, rig***lick it, select "Properties" and set it to 755

    However, typing in: www.artrental.biz/fmp/install.php gives following error message:
    Template Error: set_root: tpl is not a directory.
    Halted.

    Any other suggestions?

    By the way, the Username and password, are they suppose to be the same as those for my vodahost account?

    It seems like not all of the FMP files/folders have been uploaded. You need to check it and eventually delete everything and start from scratch.

    Please look above, post #18. Make sure that you use the correct database username and password as posted above. If your problem still persists, you can use myform to send me your loggin info (IP, username, password) as well as the name of the database you created, (if it is not obvious, like f.e. fmp) and db username and password that you have established.)

    Hi Chris, in Michaels case it was the user details that were wrong. You need to check all the DB details

    Have you set up a database ? If yes, you have probably entered the wrong DB details in the installation wizard of FMP

    Smile Re: Form Maker Pro Install help needed

    Hi Naval,

    Yes I did set up a database, and I have tried to enter the information as requested. I am sure it is something quite simple, which puzzles me.

    I did notice that I have two fmp folders, one in the public_html folder and another in the www folder, would that be the problem?

    Maybe I should delete and start over again. ???

    Thanks,

    Monty

    A "Could not connect to the database" error is exclusively a database loggin details error. If you wish, use myform to send me your login details and i'll fix it for you.
