i followed all steps in the tutorial. however when i attempt to access the page to install it, the page doesnt work. i thought i had done it right. i changed the permissions for the config and avatars as told. i tried just clicking the install/install.php file in the file manager but all that came up was a bunch of code that i prob could have weeded through to do but the buttons didnt work... i dk where to go from here any help? if it means anything i use directadmin
I can help you , ive installed it more than once. Whats your domain?
i am sure that i have done all of those things i've tried everything and it just doesnt want to work. i've countlessy uploaded the files numerous times just incase something was missed but no matter what it just gives me the 404 error when i attempt to access it.
this happens for me on other web hosting accounts aswell + i cant do it . its so annoying i just keep getting the same message all the time the 404 error.
ive looked everywhere phpbb forums and google. all the same things im pretty sure ive installed it to the directory properly its just that domain location thing mydomain.com/forum/install/install.php thing that seems to mess me up. at the moment seeing as im waiting for my frihost account im using a different webhosting service meanwhile just to test around with for when i get a frihost account that webhosting service also has CPanel + ive foolowed instructions etc MSQL database on here as the tutorials are very good but i just cant do it.
But when did you got the error? And what is the error exactly?
i get exactly the same error as the faction Ive tried everything i just dont know what ive done wrong.
i took the phpbb2 folder that appeared when extracted...opened up filezilla...put in my forums folder which is in the public_html folder..changed the permissions on the config.php and images/avatars and tried to access the necessary page. and received that error
i extracted the phpbb folder into a new directory called forum ( could this be wrong) + set permissions on he config file to 777 and images + avatars. i then tried mydomain.com/forum/install/install.php + get the 404 error.
yeah ive done that aswell. i just cant see what im doing wrong. thanks for trying to help.
i too have done that. it just doesnt want to work...why i have no clue
Just make an index.html file, and put this one in your public_html map. That's what you mean, no?
Make sure you uploaded stuff into public_html and not anywhere else too..
So, it should be uploaded to
thats where i put it.....noobie if you want i can send u my directadmin login so u can see for urself....
