If it's a new installation/conversion, you may have missed the step of deleting/renaming the /install folder in your forum folder.

Otherwise in your Admin Control Panel - Board Settings - Disable Board - No

And if you can't get in the ACP to do that - in your database, using phpmyadmin or similar,
set board_disable in the phpbb_config table to 0

I think i probably did miss that step because board disable is set to no already. how would i go about doing that now. I am getting that message to dont forget to delete and rename. im not sure exactly what they are refering to though..

Do you mean the phpbb3 folder. Cause I did rename it. i renamed it to forum

No - within the forum directory is a folder called /install
Delete or rename that folder, via FTP or your host file manager.

It's a security step, to prevent you leaving unnecessary installation files in a known location when you have finished installing.
