Website Question/Suggestion & Phpbb Problems





Soulfire
I don't really know where this post belongs, it's got a few parts to it.

My problem:
I am trying to install my phpbb forum at http://dataclan.frih.net and and I uploaded all the files and folders to public_html. The website needs to be forums only, that is to say I want them to see the forums right when they type in the address.

I type in the URL:
http://www.dataclan.frih.net/install/install.php

Then I fill in the fields correctly, and hit install. After that I get an error.

The PhpBB error is:
"An error has occured during installation
An error occurred trying to update the database
Table 'phpbb_auth_access' already exists"

I CHMODed the correct files and everything.

Suggestion:
A board "Website Support" or something.

Sorry for the wrong board post and whatnot, I need help badly though.

what you have to do is erase the already existing tables... probably you tried to install phpBB and somethng went wrong, and now you tried to overwrite it...

<?php

$drop =mysql_query("DROP TABLE `phpbb_auth_access`");
if(!$drop) die(mysql_error());
?>

upload this file and access it, it will delete the table, but your best bet is to go to phpmyadmin and drop all of the tables in your db Cool

A simple way is to delete your entire mysql database, and then create a new one. Afterthat try to install again.

Hope it helps. Wink
