I would really appreciate some help, too. I am trying to set up phpBB and thought I'd checked and checked again, but I can't even get the install settings page to open.
The instructions said to change the config.php file to 666, which I did, and went to the install/install.php url and it said "Forbidden" (and by the way, we got a 404 too).
The zip file I opened only had one directory which contained al long list of files and two other zips. I uploaded it exactly that way, and I'm wondering what directory structure they're referring to 'preserving'. I don't have any information on creating the /install/install.php path.
pretty discouraging... all the support notes said 'wow this is great and so easy' so yes I feel like a complete idjit.
Do I need to ask for php functionality as well as set up the database, or, have I not waited long enough for the database to kick in?
No idea how I managed to bollocks it up already any suggestions most appreciated.
