I had that error to. Never managed to get rid of it.

I managed to install with lighttpd server, and then bring over to apache. The funky permissions were not a problem there.
If you want, I will make a standard install on lighttpd server and send you filestructure and db.

btw... ccHost runs fine on on lighttpd - but I haven't made the pretty urls rewrite.

ini_set("display_errors","1");  didn't give me any more errors, since I think I already have errors turned on.


I am now trying to install cchost on a remote host (freebsd), and during the install, I can't get past an error for the " Your files root" variable.  It always says Error changing permissions.  (I am pretty sure that it is finding the folder, and that it exists.)

I set the permissions to 777, but still nothing.  It is a shared hosting environment, so it may indeed not be able to change the permissions, but it doesn't seem satisfied to leave them alone when they are wide open.

we're catching errors with a custom handler and considering he's
seeing other errors it doesn't sound like that errors are completely
off. returning blank screens from PHP on file upload is not an unknown
story

http://www.google.com/search?q=php+file+upload+blank+page

about 100% of the time it is due to file size exceeding one of the
many php ini parameters, like the one's we check and caution in the
install (file_uploads, upload_max_filesize, post_max_size,
post_max_size, memory_limit, max_execution_time, max_input_time, etc
all from http://us3.php.net/manual/en/ini.php )

If the script runtime oesn't call your code before it exits it doesn't
matter what your code does
