vBDownloads: What is it?

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present vBDownloads v1.0, the most professional, innovative and feature-rich downloads mod to date.

vBDownloads aims to help you manage your forum's downloads in a fast and efficient way, presenting you with all the information you and your users need.

Why vBDownloads?
Whilst looking for a new product idea, we felt that there was a need for a fully-supported downloads database in vBulletin. vBDownloads is the result of this. vBDownloads contains many interesting features such as multi-file downloads, password-protected downloads and many more exciting and innovative features!

I am getting a "You don't have permission to access /forums/vbdownloads.php on this server."

When I go to save an upload.

Even when adding a file to upload it tells me "Error: Forbidden" next to the file.

ALL my permissions allow me to do everything, I am using the Administrator account, admin permissions for my user allow me to Can Administer vBDownloads. usergroup is all yes for the vbdownloads permissions and in the permissions for the catagory all 3 are checked as yes, view, download and upload. I can create and edit Extensions, I can create and edit Category. I can do everything with the Mod except upload files.

This started with version 2.3.0, version 2.3.1 does not fix this issue.

This is a bug with your FTP server, it's not creating files with the correct permissions.
