Try changing the index.php file in the thinkoneftp/ directory
to just contain some plain text, like

    This is the index.php file in thinkoneftp

Then try loading http://www.thinkone.com/ and see if you
get the correct index.php contents.

My guess is that the webserver is somehow automatically mapping 
an empty path name (such as http://www.thinkone.com/) to the
index.php that is in the bcc/ directory.  In particular, notice
that I get something entirely different with


The latter still gives the "chdir" error, but displays the
thinkone wiki.

My other guess is that somehow the webserver doesn't know
the correct root web directory for the www.thinkone.com domain.
At any rate, this all sounds like a webserver configuration problem
of some sort.

Hope this helps,
