if there are no temp folder in the packages folder, you simply create one and set the permissiosn to 777

Make sure you use lower cases for the name "temp" on the folder

Sheff, please use the search for problems before you post. This has been asked a thousand times. The answer is located in a sticky topic in the top of this very board.

You probably have more permission issues with your files then just the packages.

Download the manuall install package we have in the download section.
Extract the files from the package, upload them to your forum and if the ftp prompt you to overwrite, just overwrite all files, and then refresh your forum again.
Most likly the TP files didnt get added through the install, so you have to add them manually.
