I'm installing a 2nd forum, www.mysite.tld/phpBB2 or not?

Post by Swerve1000 »

Hi

I'm current installing a second forum on my database and after uploading all the unzipped files into a directory called forum2, the doc says to point my bowser to www.mysite.tld/phpBB2.

Should i do this or browse another location? I dont want to mess up my 'live' forum!

Thanks

Point to where you installed it...

ie:

http://www.mysite.com/forum1 <---'Live' Forum

http://www.mysite.com/forum2 <---'test' Forum

---Do Not PM Me For Support. It will go unanswered.
Thanks.

This is'nt working and the instruction docs are poorly written.

They have the extention .tld showing. What is that?

I've using this - http://www.mysite.com/forum2/???????

Exactly which file is the required one for installation?

Thanks amigo!

The only thing you need to change is the database prefix.

Change it to something other than the default of phpbb_
