vBDownloads: What is it?

DragonByte Technologies is proud to present vBDownloads v1.0, the most professional, innovative and feature-rich downloads mod to date.

vBDownloads aims to help you manage your forum's downloads in a fast and efficient way, presenting you with all the information you and your users need.

Why vBDownloads?
Whilst looking for a new product idea, we felt that there was a need for a fully-supported downloads database in vBulletin. vBDownloads is the result of this. vBDownloads contains many interesting features such as multi-file downloads, password-protected downloads and many more exciting and innovative features!

I have a problem. The mod works "almost" fine, but I am having an issue with the Buttons "Add Files - Start Upload - Etc...". They are not showing properly, and when I click the Add Files text, the files dont show on the page to let me know they uploaded.

Now I think this is a template/css issue, because it works fine with the default style.

Check the attached screenshot.

Please check your server's error_log or ask your host for assistance if you don't know how to check that file, for the real cause behind a 500 ISE.

I've been using this for a long time without problems, thank you for your work on it.

We just moved our installation to a new server and I am facing a problem now however: I can access and download the files normally, but if I try to edit an entry (even if I make no changes) and save it again, I get a 403 page (Forbidden) mentioning this URI:

/vbdownloads.php?do=download&action=update

I've checked the permissions on the vbdownloads.php file and they're set as 644 as normal. I guess it's trying to access something else and it fails?

Any ideas on what to look for?
