Easymod install problems

Having problems installing EM? Let's fix that
Forum rules
DO NOT give out any FTP passwords to anyone! There is no reason to do so! If you need help badly enough, create a temporary FTP account that is restricted to only the files that you need help with and give the information for that. Giving out FTP information can be very dangerous!

Easymod install problems

Post by greatgamer »

Hello, I am trying to install this but I get a "The page cannot be found" error. It may be because the forum is installed on a sub domain but the path is correct. I even tried using the url without a subdomain type path "http://www." instead of "http://phpBB2.site.com/" and it didn't work. I tried searching for an answer in the easymod FAQ but couldn't find the answer to this problem. BTW I assume that 0.3.0 is the latest easymod version? Thanks.

Did you create a new folder named mods under the admin directory? It MUST BE mods, not MODS, Mods, or any other incarnation. So after uploading EM to the new mods folder, the path could look something like this:

Code: Select all

http://yourdomain.com/phpBB2/admin/mods/easymod/easymod_install.php
If that is correct, make sure that you maintained the directory structure when you extracted the EM files and folders from the EM install download...

EM Installation File Count

This is what you should find in your easymod folder:
  • Image easymod - 3 files, 4 sub-folders
    • Image em_includes - 6 files
    • Image includes - 14 files, one sub-folder
      • Image sql - 6 files

Thanks, bah I cannot believe the mistake I made. My new site has a similar looking directory structre to phpBB so I uploaded easymod to it's admin directory instead of phpBB2. I am trying to figure out how I made that mistake since I thought I did a good job of making sure the path was correct :P I can access it now but haven't setup everything yet since I will take a nap now. Thanks :)

Congratulations greatgamer!!! Image

Because of EM, I've installed over 800 MODs on my board alone. I would never have done that if I had to install them all manually. I'm sorry you didn't learn about EM earlier, it might have saved you a lot of time and trouble. Better late than never...

If you have any additional questions, comments, or concerns, don't be shy about asking for assistance. If I can, I will be more than happy to help you...

i uploaded the easymod files to my ftp under ftp://xx.xx.xxx.x/www/admin/mods/easymod/

www because that is where i have to go to access the admin folder.. i uploaded the files then went to the link http://mydomainhere.com/phpBB2/admin/mo ... nstall.php

and all i got was a this page cannont be displayed. what did i do wrong?

since the admin folder isent in my phpbb2 file i changed the link to where the admin folder is located. http://mydomain.com/www/admin/mods/easy ... nstall.php

the only thing in my phpbb 2 file is a files that just says the name of mywebsite (mywebsite.com) do i have to put all the files from www into the pbpbb2 folder for it to work?
