You seem to have 3 different site addresses.
You have a site in English and one in French.
You're installing, you're updating and you're changing folder names that the installations are in.
Please just state clearly and concisely what exactly you are doing and what you want to do.
Yes, I have a site in English and another in French.
For over six weeks, I had been trying to update my French site following the article 1111 of the knowledge base to no avail. I had accepted help from well-meaning people, friends and others; sometimes I gave them my ftp data to login to my account, They tried to "cleanup the Directory." I now discover many contradictions and inconsistences introduced into my account e g User name of my database and database name of my French site are both temoinde_board on config.php and teminde_board and temoinde_phpBB3 respectively on MySQL. As if that was not enough, user name of the database of my English board is also temoinde_board.
I have uninstalled the outdated phpBB3 French site while keeping the database. I am reinstalling a fresh up-to-date phpBB3. I am not updating folder names or anythingesle, I have deleted all files on the phpBB3 Directory on my file manager. While installing the whole pbpBB-3.2.2, I set the remote site to /public_html/phpBB3/ yet the system loads it as phpBB3/phpBB3/ You think I was updating; no I was uploading afresh. I do not understand why the system changed it. It was explained before that it was because I have a Share Cpanel on FastDomain.
I have now repeated the upload to the correct location. The Install page opened without problems. Access is denied to database. See attached screenshot:
I entered the database username and database name as is on MySQL See attached;
