I have a plan to add a Link directory to the site NewGenre Software and BPO Solutions. Simply like wwwsitename/directory. From the php link directory I have the downloaded copy of the script with me. When i tried to install it in my site it shows some writing CHMOD permission errors. I checked it and that feature is disabled it seems. Though I contacted the hosting providers a few days before, that's not my doubt.
I created a free hosting account with a site where I could install the directory and it is working perfectly. My question is if am creating a similar index.php page in my own site, will it be possible to utilize the database of the free hosting site. Will inter server database transfers work. I have no idea, please share some information regarding this.
