message_die() was called multiple times --- Install Error

Post by thestoffer » Sat Jan 03, 2004 8:37 pm

I'm trying to install phpbb2 on an online server, and after I got past the second page of the installation, I get this error:

Code: Select all

message_die() was called multiple times. This isn't supposed to happen. Was message_die() used in page_tail.php?
Every time I try to access www.myurl.com/phpbb2 I get that, and it even shows up when I try www.myurl.com/phpbb2/faq.php. Is this a known error? What can I do?

Ok, I found out what to do.
If this is after you have done the installation and pressed the button to go to the admin panel or whatever it says, try removing the install/ and contrib/ directories and refreshing the page.


got that from here

Yes, you want to make sure that you have those directories deleted after installation to ensure that your forum is secure. If you leave them in the directory, a hacker can use them as a backdoor to compromise your site.
