what are you using to download and upload the files?

are you unzipping the files on your computer before you upload them?

ok, I am running a test install.
just so we are on the same page.
where are you downloading the zip file from?
are you downloading the zip or the bz2 file?
are you uploading the whole phpbb3 directory at once?

what database type are you using?

what php version is on your server?

ok, just downloaded a fresh copy from the area51 download page ( zip file )
unzipped on my computer
uploaded the phpBB3 folder all at once, using filezilla
ran the install and it went without a hitch.

that means there is something wrong with either what you are doing, how you are doing it or where you are doing it.

double check everything again and try it again.

A blank page usually indicates a suppressed error. Try this:
Open: /install/index.php
Find:

Code: Select all

define('IN_INSTALL', true);
After, add:

Code: Select all

define('DEBUG', true);
Also, what database connection are you using? MySQL or MySQLi?

Are you looking in the right file? It's in /install/index.php, not /index.php. It's on line 22.
