Group Rank Hack Install problem!

Wondering why that MOD you have won't install correctly? Let's take a look
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!

I only help installing EM and installing MODs using EM. I see no reason to help people who choose to install MODs the hard way. Since EM doesn't make human errors, it's a lot easier debugging MOD install problems when people use EM. I can help you to get EM installed then we can go from there...

Did you happen to see what the name of this forum is???

Sorry! If you could point me to the latest version of EM. And we can get it installed properly that would be awesome.

EasyMOD v0.3.0 released (for phpBB 2.0.x)

EM Installation Instructions

If you haven't done so, here is the EM Installation Read Me and a Supplement that Nux created. It would be good if you read it now if you haven't already done so:
  1. ReadMe for EasyMOD beta 1 (0.3.0)
  2. EM Installation Supplement
Now, do the following:
  1. Create a mods subfolder in your admin folder
  2. Upload the entire easymod folder, including all 54 files and 5 folders, to the new admin/mods subfolder that you just created using your favorite FTP application. My favorite is SmartFTP because it is powerful and free...
  3. Once the files are fully uploaded to your FTP server, run the the EM install in your browser. The path may look something like the following in your browser. Make sure the path is exact, including font case. MODS is not the same as Mods or mods:

    Code: Select all

    http://yourdomain.com/phpBB2/admin/mods/easymod/easymod_install.php
  4. There are about 6 Steps in the EM installl. For each page displayed, scroll to the bottom. If there is a button, keep pressing them until EM says FINAL Step on the last page and there are no other buttons on the bottom of the page. Many people quit too soon before EM is fully installed, so don't make that mistake.
  5. If all goes well, EM should now be installed
If you run into any problems, don't hesitate to ask for additional support...

It says
Critical Error: EasyMOD cannot be installed. The subSilver template is not present in the templates directory. This template is required as the baseline template for MOD installations. The subSilver template is provided in the standard phpBB download at http://www.phpbb.com.

I do have the complete subsilver template in my templates folder. But I run the AndGrey template.

Go ahead and install subSilver in your ACP Styles Admin. You don't have to use it and you can set it to override the users choices in Configuration in your ACP General Admin, but subSilver MUST BE installed in order to install EM...

Do I leave the EM folder in my admin folder?

You can leave it in admin/mods or you can remove it. Once installed, EM is not using the install files any longer...

You would now upload your MOD folders to admin/mods...
