Yes I suspect phpbb has a problem with their software I have tried the same thing on hostgator and its not working their either getting different errors, its actually two different problems on hostgator.
Sadly the problems and errors will go unreported because of the micky mouse way phpbb administers their message board they chase away more users than they get to help them, I am done with trying to post on the phpbb message board over the years I have created 11 accounts, 11 different emails, each time I come across a new problem then return my account does not work says my password is bad cant get a new password its a real cycle of stupid more than once I have given a moderator all my emails and user names ask them to delete them all they dont, most the admin at that site is ego and emotional driven I am done with them if these current problems cant be resolved I will dump phpbb and go with something else even if its a lesser product at least I dont have to deal with the morons that run the program.
Sorry for the phpbb rant.
Thanks so much for all your help you have a great setup I have been in love with since the first time I installed.
I installed your latest build and must say I like the user interface and admin panel of Uniform Server 7.1.11-Orion much better.
