Hi. I'm using the phpbb since 2003.Never ever had any troubles installing it.
Today i've tried to make a clean install of the 3.2 version on nginx server. And as many users i've stumbled at the very first step: the "Install" tab leads you to the /forum/install/app.php/install page which is not exists. After a quick search, i've found at this thread
that i have to setup my nginx server in a very special way to even install the forum!
And this is beyond me! Why should i ever change the config of my server to install a forum? Why should i redirect the parameters passed to the app.php via "/install" by hacking into the server configs? What's wrong with plain and simple "app.php?a=install" way which is supported by any server by default? Really guys, you've amazed me today!
And what if the user has no access to the server's config file? Before he could easily install the forum, but now it's impossible in such conditions.
Please, guys, prove me wrong and tell me, that there is still a way to install phpbb on nginx old way without changing the configs of the server. Is there any switch or flag in the config of the forum to use it as usual?
