—>>>>If you followed the instructions and did not alter any files other than the path, there should be no issues. Most people have altered the ads.dat file or have not made sure their path was correct.

Note: Do not install this script on your root. Install in a separate folder and make sure to block access to folder through htaccess. This will help prevent file manipulation. For security, make sure your .htaccess file is set to not allow lurkers to view the directory you will install PHPads within.
