Really stuck - Easymod / phpMyAdmin

Post by sgreen0 »

I recently transferred our site to a new server. Since then, though the phpBB forum works fine, easymod and phpmyadmin are gone. I try running the install and easymod says it's already installed (but no mod menu appears in the admin page of phpBB).

I then tried to install phpMyAdmin to check the database, but when I run http://our-site/phpMyAdmin/setup.php, I get this error:

Code: Select all

Warning: require_once(./libraries/ [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in D:\Inetpub\vhosts\\httpdocs\phpMyAdmin\setup.php on line 20

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required './libraries/' (include_path='.;./includes;./pear') in D:\Inetpub\vhosts\\httpdocs\phpMyAdmin\setup.php on line 20
It looks as though the easymod and phpmyadmin files are present, but neither will run as is. Is there a way to completely remove them and start again?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

you simply remove all traces of the files you uploaded and any changes to the database.

however, those errors about phpmyadmin are because the files it is looking for are not there. that means that you did not upload them all correctly.
