I copied latest install to root/forum

I moved the bin and app_code folder to my root. I uncomment key to be:

<add key="YAF.FileRoot" value="~/forum"/>

I copied db.config, app.config and urlrewriter.config to my root dir (this took me a while to figure out!)

Then when I go through install process I get to:


No Write Access to App Settings

Unable to modify your config file to write the installation password due to permission.

Please open the (Unknown! YAF default is app.config) file in the application root directory and add/update the following key in the <AppSettings> section:

<add key="YAF.ConfigPassword" value="YourPassword" />
See this Topic in the YAF Wiki for more Information

Click "Next" when you are ready.

So I open it manually and set it to:

<add key="YAF.ConfigPassword" value="12345" />

But no luck, nothing changes I can't get past this step
Your YAF root directory needs modify permissions for the user account that your IIS worker process is working under. Without that, YAF cannot manage it's config files during installation. The .config files should be in the same folder that the YAF web.config is located in (that is the directory that needs modify/write permission.
If you can't find it using the forum search, try my signature link -- searches this site using Google: Google is my Friend 
Thanks! All sorted!
