Keeps telling me to delete install drectory

Post by PELP » Wed Nov 29, 2017 10:21 am

I have upgraded my board, www.fritforum.dfac.dk, from 3.1.6 to 3.2.1.

After upgrade, andfollowing instructions on how to upgrade here: https://download.phpbb.com/pub/document ... tation.pdf I keep getting the "Please delete, rename or move the install directory". The problem is, that the directory is deleted but the problem persists, keeping me for going online.

This is urgent. What do I do?

EDIT: False alarm. Problem solved. In FileZilla (used to delete directory) the directory was gone, but when I went onto the file system on my server via my providers website, it was still there, so now it is really gone and everything looks fine - for the time being.

Looks like it's still there.

Your hosts might have some caching running. You can try a different FTP application to delete it or ask the hosts to do it.

Thanks KevC.

As you can see from the "edit" in my post, you hit the nail on the head.
