I finally got my own server. First I installed DirectAdmin, then transfered files, some issues with one database ... but solved them soon ennough. Got a phpforum, ran it fron the getgo...
All in all, everything ran smoothly. I did a rookie mistake, since I untared a file with my root user and had to chown -R everything.
Then, using my ftp client (ws_ftp ... I´m used to it) chmod everything in the folder to 755. That took like 3 hours (cuase the silly thing does it one by one), but since it was an inside directory and everything else was working, I left my computer doing stuff.
Then, a few hours later, files and dirs had been chmoded, BUT the site has a big 500 Internal Server Error. The /foros (forum) a 501. Nothing works! restarted (what's the diff with reloaded?)apache, mysql .. rebooted .. and nothing!!
is the domain
