[not EM] problem installing =S

Post by rozza121 » Thu Aug 19, 2004 1:42 pm

hey, i installed phpBB from fantastico cos i am useless at manual installations. when i heard about easymod i thought it would be perfect! so i donwloaded it and went to upload it using my ftp client.
The instructions say i am to upload it in the following admin/mods/easymod
But when i click on /admin/ there is no folder called '/mod/' just a load of .php's

im sure the answer is really simple, but i am totally confused as to what to do.. is it beacuse i uploaded it from fantastico?

Thanks, i'd apprettiate ANY help !

You either have to create the folder admin/mods/, or just copy the entire contents of the download zip into your admin/ directory. The latter is easier.

You should have everything in a similar location as:
phpBB2/admin/mods/easymod/easymod_install.php

Then you have to visit http://<yoursite>/phpBB2/admin/mods/easymod/easymod_install.php to run the installer.

If you are having problems, paste the exact error message. (Highlight the text, press CTRL+C, move the cursor to the posting box, press CTRL+V, then submit. If you are on a Mac, press CMD instead of CTRL.)
