You need to add your info to the admin/config.inc.php file. Fill in the missing information between the quotes (" ")

Example:

Around line 4:


Change databasename to the actual name of your database (including host prefix if any).

Change databaseusername to the actual user name for your database (including host prefix if any).

Change databasepassword to the actual password for your database user.

Around line 59:


Change "yoursite.com" to your actual site address. Replace "guestbook" with the actual name of the directory you put your guestbook in.

Change email@yoursite.com to your actual email address.

You need to change the permissions on both the public and tmp folders in the guestbook folder. You need to CHMOD them both to 777. If you do not know how to do this then read your FTP clients help files.

Actually having reread your post I am worried. unlink(index.html) says to me that the script was trying to unlink (delete) the index.php file of the guestbook. I may be wrong though.

Since the error is saying "permission denied" you need to check Chmod permissions again. As Carbonize said, the tmp and public directories have to be set to 777. Were you not able to do this? What FTP client are you using? Do you have CPanel?

In CPanel, select "File Manager"

Navigate to the directory you put the guestbook in
  • click on the folder to the left of "public_html"
    click on the folder to the left of "guestbook"

  • Click on the guestbook subdirectory named "Public"
  • (Click on the name, not the folder)


  • (Usually) on the right, select "Change Permissions"

    Click in all the boxes so the permission reads 777

    Click on "change"

    Same thing for the guestbook subdirectory named "tmp"

    Having changed the directory permissions on tmp and public to 777, and having read all I can find of help from carbonize and amber, is there any other help regarding file permissions on the advanced guestbook? Occaisionally, the file permissions are correct on the full-size photo. Sometimes the file permissions are set correctly on the thumbnail. I still have to go to the website several times a day to fix permissions so my clients guestbook photos work - any ideas?

    Thanks
