Luke I'm not sure what else to try to get it to work. :( I asked a friend and he said I need an actual graphical environment to get it to install. I've only got shell / command line access to that server... unless there's something I'm missing I really have no clue how to et it to install.
I know you don't care about the S&M section that much and its really low on your priority list, but could you PLEASE see if you can get the Shoddy server to work. It would mean a lot to a lot of the members if you did. Right now were using another site's server as "home" and it sucks.
