Install Help.

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!

Post by RANT » Wed Mar 07, 2007 9:30 pm

i just downloaded easymod and 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?

Where is your phpBB root located?
In the www directory root on your FTP server?
Then I can give you the adress to use.

im hosted by http://www.siteground.com and they put phpbb2 on for me. for ftp access the phpbb2 folder is located /.fantasticodata/phpBB2 in that directory.. the only file in the phpbb2 folder is mywebsite.com.

to get to the admin folder i have to scroll down to a folder called www which in that lists my admin folder followed by admin_board.php and alot of other .php files. so thats what i go threw to locate my admin folder.. then i go threw the steps

http://www.myforum.com/www/admin/mods/e ... nstall.php

and then all i get is a this page cannot be displayed..

http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f235/ ... tppic3.gif <This one shows whats under the Fantastico folder.

http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f235/ ... tppic2.gif < This shows whats in the Admin Folder

Your path to the EM install is wrong. It should be something like this:

Code: Select all

theres only 1 file in my phpbb2 folder.. and thats the website.com file. everything else like the admin folder is all in the WWW folder. thats why i changed phpbb2/ to www/. or do i have to move everything for the WWW folder and put it in the phpbb2 folder?.

to get to my forum its just http://www.lupisdemortem.com thats my forum. to access everything i want to do to it i have to go into the www folder. i went to add a template i had to go into my www folder and go into templates to upload it there. thats where all my forum files are located.. the only file in the phpbb2 folder is a lupisdemortem.com file and thats it.

So if you can access your forum without including the www in the path, then you would do the same when accessing the EM install file...

So the path would look something like this:

Code: Select all

http://yourdomain.com/admin/mods/easymod/easymod_install.php

Yes, use the Ftp option unless you are on a Windows server...
