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.
To give some background. My phpBB is running as a test-bed with fresh install on my backup computer. I am using this test-bed to test and develop new phpBB modules. This particular install will never be made public, but if all goes well, I will rent a VPS for a public forum.
The test-bed is running on Gentoo Linux. Using Gentoo package manager, I installed mysql, Apache2, and phpBB. According to this forum, I can simply remove the install directory, because I am not upgrading an existing forum. According to the package manager, phpBB installed a the directory "/usr/share/webapps/phpBB/3.1.10-r1/htdocs/install/". That directory contains "convertors/convert_phpbb20.php". It also has the same sibling directories as pictured in the post viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2179972.
After reading this forum, I determined that "/usr/share/webapps/phpBB/3.1.10-r1/htdocs/install/" is the correct directory, I deleted it's contents and removed it.
My problem is that now that the directory is gone (double-checked that), I am still getting the message "Warning Please delete, move or rename the install ...". Does anyone have an idea what I should try next?
