Edited by AJD: We have a whole forum, there's no reason to have all installation problems in one topic. Just makes things more confusing for me. Thanks

Enable DEBUG and DEBUG_EXTRA in config.php, that should solve it.

It's still commented out. It needs to be:

Code: Select all

@define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);
@define('DEBUG', true);
@define('DEBUG_EXTRA', true);

It's a minor bug, I've already fixed in in SVN.

you also have to enable Debug extra than it will work.

Code: Select all

@define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);
@define('DEBUG', true);
@define('DEBUG_EXTRA', true);

You are correct, DEBUG_EXTRA is also required.

Or you simply add

Code: Select all

define('ADMIN_START', 1);
to the installer before the start of the session (had the same issue on a MOD)

Thanks it worked! :D

:idea: :| ;) BTW i also found that the board is not disabled if you have the install directory still stored. No other side effects but that.

Thanks you saved me lots of frustration! :)
