Hello

I have downloaded phpBB 2.0.17, and have uploaded it using ftp, the problem is i can't get to the install page:

http://www.redandwhitefans.com/forum/in ... nstall.php

It just doesn't load up. :?

I'm probs missing something very simple, can anyone please give a step by step guide? I haven't done a database of any kind.

Sorry to sound a noob

Thank you in advance
Matty

I can't even get to your website, in FireFox I get the following error:
URL: http://www.redandwhitefans.com/
Error: Redirection limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the requested page. This may be caused by cookies that are blocked.

Please open a trouble ticket.
To do this use the "request help" link under every post in every help topic in the Help Center in your Control Panel.

ok m8 u need to reinstall itu moved soem files and not moved some i think its best if u do it like this k delete ur forum and all files and folders on ur site cos from what i see there only forum files

so delete the following files/folders

cache/
db/
docs/
images/
includes/
language/
phpBB2/
templates/
NOTE: U MUST GO IN www/yourdomain/

when deleted upload the folder phpbb2 from

UPLOADING:

File Manager (IN THE CONTROL PANEL)
click on www and on your domain name so in the top where it says Current : you should have this
Quote:
Current : www/redandwhitefans.com/

now all u need to do is great a folder called phpbb2 and upload the files in it and any other folder with files in it just great a new folder and name it the same as the folder u want tp upload

FTP (FTP Program recomended)

you can download one from www.downloads.com i use ftp core lite

k if you dont have one you can connect with you internet browser

put this in ur internet browser
Quote:
ftp://redandwhitefans.com/

and a popup should popup asking you for ur user name and password (you should have that info in a email)

when loged in go to www/redandwhitefans.com
and just drag the folder phpbb2 in there and it should upload
NOTE: THIS WILL TAKE A LONG TIME COS YOU UPLOADING IT AT THE SAME TIME AND MIGTH EVEN LOOK LIKE IT CRASH JUST LEAVE IT TILL ITS DONE
