I am extremely new to PHP Nuke. It took me two weeks to get it installed. I used all the main forums and webpage tutorials and finally got the page to come up.
I was able to create my "god" user and open the Admin portal. Now if I click on any of the icons (with the exception of logout and backup) it just loops back to the admin portal with icons. I also noticed a little message in the lower portal that says access denied.
I adjusted all of the file permissions to 777(which is probably bad, but I am testing at the moment) and I was able to delete my "author" user info and "user" info from the database and re-create a new admin after reload. Still no better.
My next problem is emails....I recieved a confirmation email 6 hours after I made an account and the activation link sent me to phpnuke.org instead of my page to complete activation. I also did a test to upload a file to the downloads section and no email was sent to me to approve the upload. I even checked the webmail through dreamhost.
I'm at a loss and after almost 3 weeks of trying to get some headway I am about to quit. I'm tired of searching for the answer.
If anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it! THANKS!
