<h1>
1 - <a name="1">What does CHMOD means ?</a><br>
CHMOD means <b>change mode</b> and it's a unix command that let you change files and folder permissions , you don't need to chmod if you're on WIN OS.<br>
A file with CHMOD to 666 is writeable a readable by all users.<br>
A folder with CHMOD 777 is usable to create and then read and write files.<br><br>
2 - <a name="2">How do I CHMOD files and folders ?</a><br>
If you are reading this you are probably using an FTP client such as Cute Ftp , when you're connected select a file or folder and click with the right mouse button , now you should see an option named CHMOD.<br><br>
3 - <a name="3">How can I change icons and images ?</a><br>
You can create new icons and images by yourself and then name them with the same name of icons and images used in forum and then replace the images and icons you want with yours.If you come on the site there you can download the psd files to work on the images with photoshop 5.<br><br>
4 - <a name="4">What cookies are used for ?</a><br>
Cookies are used to do auto-login.<br><br> 
6 - <a name="5">I get this error : <b>Warning: open(...\tmp\sess_38e235e1...</b> , What can I do ?</a><br>
This is due to session files creation , you should edit the php.ini file and search the line that set the path where the session files will be stored. You can do this editing php.ini with notepad and searching a line with <b>tmp</b>. After setting the path , you must create the tmp folder which must be under the right path.<br><br>
