many links are simply broken on xoops.org

Greetings all,
After a recent install of xoops-2.5.8, I came back to xoops.org to
look for some additional Themes. I went to:
https://xoops.org/modules/extgallery/
to browse the themes available for my version. But upon selecting a theme
on the page. There are no links available to download the theme.
So I thought to try a different link to find themes for xoops. I went to
xoops.org, and selected the Themes link at the bottom of the page
(https://xoops.org/#), and was simply sent to the top of the (xoops) home
page.
Is xoops.org simply broken, today? The forums at least seem to be working.

Thank you.

--Chris

Re: xoops install broken -- redefines mimetype for php files.

OK My bad.
I neglected to make the file
include/license.php
writable by the web server. Changing the permissions cured the problem.

Thanks, and sorry for the noise.

[SOLVED] xoops install broken -- redefines mimetype for php files.

OK I'm looking for a suitable CMS/BLOG type application to install on the 160 some domains
I own, and operate. In my initial evaluation of XOOPS (2.5.8) I discover that the second page
of the installer (installwizard) redefines the MIMETYPE for the php extension (suffix). WTF?!
Look, anyone installing a PHP script, or PHP based application, will *already* have a
server suitably setup for running PHP scripts. So *why* does XOOPS attempt to define
it at all? New users that may *not* have the proper server environment setup for
running PHP, or XOOPS, will need only read the INSTALL docs to discover how to
get, and setup a proper server, with all the necessary ingredients.
As it sits now, anything past the second screen of the installer, results in being
prompted to download the php file (page_modcheck.php).
Needless to say; XOOPS will not be my choice of CMS/FORUM/BLOG.
Sorry.

relevant info:
PHP 5.3
SERVER Apache 2.2
XOOPS: 2.5.8
