Easymod installation troubles

Post by WildBill69 » Wed Feb 20, 2008 4:41 pm

I had a major malfunction with my forum, and I have to go back and reinstall all of my mods including EasyMOD. I have tried a couple of times following the instructions, and it doesn't seem to be working. I upload the zip file. I extract the file to the admin folder. it does not install a file that says mods into th admin folder. It installs a folder that says EasyMOD. What am I doing wrong. It went in a whole lot easier the first time. I just don't remember how I did it.

Create a folder named mods in the admin folder with your ftp program ...... and upload the easymod files in the mods folder.... after that you can install easymod

I got it in. But here's what I get. There is no previous installation.

If you are trying to reinstall this version, change the EM version number from the Admin Control Panel under EasyMOD Settings. Or you could also use the EM Version Changer (by GPHemsley) here.

that is because the easymod tables etc. are still in your database.

using phpmyadmin or whatever you have to access and maintain your database,

find the EM tables and find the EM version part and change it to some other number.

then go back and do the easymod install again.

or, delete /drop all the EM tables from the database and then install easymod again.
