During installation the requirements check verifies the ability to write to a directory. One of those directories being checked, if the check fails, comes up with this message in a yellow/amber box:
To be able to install phpBB the images/avatars/upload/ directory needs to be writable.
After all of the other checks pass this one remains after the initial installer screen as a persistent box above the administrator information entry fields. One of two things needs to happen here:
- The text should be changed to something a little more appropriate like maybe: "It is recommended that the images/avatars/upload/ directory be writable for a better forum user experience." (I'm not attached to the phrasing so it can be whatever makes it clear that it's not really required)
- Leave the text as is but make the check red and be required to be solved before proceeding.
