Thanks David. In regard to the files/directory, images/directory etc. Am I deleting the entire folder?
Say public_html/images or am I looking to delete only public_html/images/directory type files?
I knew this would get me into strife :D

you do exactly as the instructions say.

if it says to delete the images folder/directory then you delete that folder etc.

there is no reason to guess or wonder what the instructions mean. do exactly what they say, no more, no less.

Hmmm, well there is no Store/directory and there is no files/directory.
Maybe I'm reading this wrong...should I be looking for say a folder called "directory" within the public_html/store folder?

Mucked up something by the looks:

[EDIT] may be Ok, think I deleted the "install" folder before installing.

You should start a support topic for this. Posting in the 3.1.6 release topic isn't the best place for it.

there is nothing named "directory" a directory and a folder are the same thing.



when you download phpbb from here and unzip it you have one directory named phpBB3. inside that main directory are several other directories and a bunch of files.

inside each of those directories are several other directories and files, etc. etc.

now, the instructions tell you to remove the file named config.php, the directories named files, store and images.

that is, the directory named files, the directory named store and the directory named images.

I hope that is easier to understand now.

then, you upload all the rest of the directories and files to your server.

then, in your browser you go to : yourdomain.com/yourphpbb/install/database_update.php

that file will update the database. it will show you a message at the bottom of the page when it is finished.

then you go back and delete that directory named install.

you are done.

Thank you, I'm a bit (a lot) slow with this stuff :roll:
Guess where I went wrong in the end was going to " yourdomain.com/yourphpbb/install/database_update.php"
and trying to follow install instructions on that page...when in fact it had probably already updated the database! I never saw any message saying it was done, but I only breezed quickly down the page to start with, and seeing no options/notifications there went back to trying to install.

just to be clear, if you are at the install/database_update.php file there are no install instructions on that page.


if you have already done the database update and visit that page again it simply tells you that no update is needed.
