Hi,

Back using Xoops for the 1st time in a few years, appologies for the ignorance.

Just checking on this instalation prompt:

"5.For security considerations, you are strongly advised to move the two directories below out of document root and change the folder names:

xoops_lib
xoops_data"

I assume they are still needed, just put them in one of the other folders?
But then your asked to:

"6.Create (if not already present) and make the directories writable:
xoops_data/caches
xoops_data/caches/xoops_cache
xoops_data/caches/smarty_cache
xoops_data/caches/smarty_compile
xoops_data/configs"

Why ar ethey not already present? I assume xoops_data becomes your new name (e.g. new_name/caches) ?

But are these names (e.g. xoops_data/cahes) not refered to in the code?

Slightly confused, please help.

Thanks

Try the detailed Installation Guide, and this will make it hopefully easier for you.

There was this "If" - if you correctly installed XOOPS, they are already there.
