Should this be in the http://discussion.dreamhost.com/postlist.pl?Cat=&Board=3rdparty
3rd Party software forum?
*How to create links in this sytem?"
I installed WordPress and Wiki ... my compliments to DreamHost ... very nice process and great error checking.
When I installed Forum I got the same "will be ready in 10 minutes" but nope ... I didn't get the lovely fact-filled email notification and the directory I specified is 404 ... no joy.
When you look to see how the system works
likely you will find that it does not.
