I spent some time today upgrading our troubleshooter page, which can be found as one of the navigation tabs at the top of the installation and upgrade pages. Previously the troubleshooter had a limited number of checks that it would run on your site to test for common problems. Now the troubleshooter will detect all files and folders that need their CHMOD settings altered. I even caught a couple folders that I forgot to CHMOD myself when first running the new troubleshooter, darn avatars subfolders.
The page will also detect a few other problems such as PHP features that might not be turned on for your server, resulting in a broken Pligg. This will help you figure out if your server is compatible with Pligg, and even give you some instructions on fixing some problems. We aren’t asking for anything radical, just PHP 5 and MySQL 5 along with a few standard options like the GD Graphics Library and fopen. Even if you find your server setting off some red flags on the troubleshooter page your server will probably work. The red warnings only serve as a guideline for supported servers. You may find more errors on your server if it doesn’t come up all green.
