    Installing vB 4.2.5

    Hello vB Mods! I have a few questions.

    I'm wanting to use vB 4.2.5 however, since I have never used it I'm confused about the installation process.

    When I use filezilla to log into my FTP server, I drag "upload" folder into my /htdocs right? Once that is done the following steps are as follows.

    1. Upload the contents of the 'upload' folder.
    2. CHMOD ALL folders to 0755 before beginning the install.
    3. Rename /includes/config.php.new to config.php.
    4. Configure /includes/config.php.
    5. Run the installer, configure and enjoy!

    Let's start with 2. what exactly is "CHMOD to 0755"?

    then with step 4. "Configure /includes/config.php." Does this require coding or to load the config.php into a coding program?

    Then finally when "Running the installer" is this just like any other forum software? "mysite.com/index.php" or "mysite.com/install.php"
