Download the language pack from this link https://www.phpbb.com/languages/index.p ... ckage_list unzip it and FTP the files to the language directory of your board.

Then go to the acp>customise>Language Management and install the pack

Then go to General>board Settings and select German as the default language

Thank you, so far,

I FTP-ed it up - and it is there, with CHMOD 0755, and I refreshed the FTP.
Then:
But in the forum-ACP > Language Management > Language Packs:
the new-FTP-uploaded German Language pack does NOT show up!
- How can I solve that?
:)

Sorry, I didn't explain properly before, its not the whole directory to upload, but the contents.

Once unzipped you will find the files as screenshot

Those three files are the ones to upload to the forum root

So the contents of ext go into the ext directory

So the contents of language go into the language directory

So the contents of styles go into the styles directory

Thank you, so much!

I've got it:
the style directory and the language directory must be replaced in the FTP-root-board (the direcctory where the config.php is)!

Thank you :D
