3.06 Upgrade Problem

Post by Gator-Fan » Sun Nov 29, 2009 4:05 am

Get following message when opening upgrade of existing forum:

Warning
Please delete, move or rename the install directory before you use your board. If this directory is still present, only the Administration Control Panel (ACP) will be accessible.


Sorry to sound lame, but how do I do the above? Thanks in advance.

Just navigate to your phpbb root directory with your FTP client, right click /install and select delete.

Won't that just dump the entire phpBB setup?

FWIT, my forum is hosted by BLUEHOST and the upgrade was done through them.

Thanks.

have you upgraded yet? if not, do so, and THEN delete the install directory (nothing else).

Yes, I've upgraded (hence the problem).

See image above: Within Forums is a folder titled "installold3," the only such with the word "install" in the filename.

Further on, there's a folder titled "public_html" and nested under this is a folder titled "install." (See image attached) Is this the folder to delete?

Sorry, I went to bed. :D

Are you still having this issue? If so, can you post a picture of what your seeing (in something other than tiff, since it's not showing correctly). Thanks!
