Started using Xoops, tried to make modules work. They install, but some say chmod to file 777. I know how to do this on Unix, but how can I get this to work on a Windows server? Is XOOPS not ready or are all the modules not ported to IIS and Windows? Thank you.

you can try an ftp client if you have access to the server.

or have your isp do it for you.

Thanks. Didn't really help though. It showed me how to install it. Sorry if I missed it.

To change folder permission on Windows Servers you need to go to your website control panel and change the permissions there. It can't be done via FTP software.

There might be an issue with the IUSR_(machine) account not having the correct read access required. You might need to send an email to your webhosts and ask them to provide full permissions to the IIS service user to mainfile.php (initially) and the cache/templates_c/uploads folders.

HTH.
