Why on earth does everyone need fantastico? Damn the person that made that stupid program.

Anyway, back to the question,

I guess when you login, your broswer is redirected to the greatest website on earth.

www.microsoft.com

If so, can you please tell me your domain, and if your forum is in a subroot.

I mean this.

Domain - frihost.com
Subroot - /forums/

IE, you have to access the forums by typing www.frihost.com/forums/
mrsliickz
subroot: /phpBB2

when i login or go to administrator panel it goes to an error page. try checking out my phpBB2 page.

You know what? I can't see a single thing (the picture is too small).

Sorry, I can't help you.
mrsliickz
look again i made it bigger sorry it was so small. i accidently shrunk it. but yeh read it n tell me wat i should do please.

The image is in your directadmin acconut Rolling Eyes.

We need to login before being able to view it.

Anyway, I made a workaround and got to your image.

Select database type mySQL 4.x

Leave everything.

go to database name - fill in the database name
go to database user - fill in the database user
go to database pass - as usual fill in the database pass.

Leave everything else. Fill in the email address, admin user, admin pass. Don't touch anything else.

Hit install.

You should try uploading it yourself and installing it yourself,
you get more controll then! like the name of the database and on...
And I know Fantastico sometimes doesn't work!
But it's a luxury program and you don't need it to make phpbb2 work.
phpbb2 has an automated installer too, so that helps!
try going to www.tweakers.net if you having problems with installing!
I believe theres a manual install tutorial there!

GRTZ,

It's http://www.mrsliickz.frih.net/phpbb2/ and most likely your database settings are wrong. It isn't able to connect to the database.

He didn't even manage to install phpBB..!? So how could that happen?
Lady Elensar
Check the settings in your config.php file. You probably filled in the wrong settings. You have to change them (your database settings), and then you can try it again.

I will help to set up the forum, but for that i need account data and the desired username and password. The password can always be changed after that.

If you agree, send me a pm with the data and i will try to help.

The best that you can do is change temporary your password of your account, if you want that i set up your forum.

By the way what type of account log in do you use. Cpanel or directAdmin?

[edit] The first help is free, after that i ask a few frih$ for help.
