I'm having problems with the installation of this mod.

Problem began in Step 2 when trying to run the install.php file. Uploaded it and tried to run it and was unsuccessful. Upon posting the correct URL in my browser, the page would just seem to time out.

Now when going to my index.php redirects to a 404 error and seems to redirect (and shows the install.php url in the address bar) to the install/install.php page.

In other words I'm trying to go to:
and I'm getting a 404 error and being redirected to:

I am now just trying to remove the mod and after removing all the pages I still can't get to my original board to appear.

I will abandon trying to get this mod to work if i can just get my board back!!

UPDATE....ALL pages redirect to that install/install.php page (w/ the 404 error).

You probably still have the install or contrib directories in your forum folder.

Ah...I see the problem. You've somehow managed to delete your config.php file which is vital to the life of your forum. You'll need to create a new one. If you have no idea what to put in it then here's what the contents of it should be:

Code: Select all


// phpBB 2.x auto-generated config file
// Do not change anything in this file!

$dbms = 'mysql';

$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbname = 'yourdbname';
$dbuser = 'dbuser';
$dbpasswd = 'dbuserpassword';

$table_prefix = 'phpbb_';

define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);

Of course you'll have to assign the variables applicable values. Once you do that, save your file as config.php, upload to your forum, and voila.

well......that was actually me deleting and re-uploading a backup copy of the config.php file.

I'm back to getting the same redirect to the install.php page.

by anytimevillage were right. Even my backup copy of that file is empty...

I think I'm on the right track now...

This by far as to be the best mod for PHPBB. It is very feature rich and has to be one of the largest mods written as far as lines of code.
