Iam wondering if the lack off SSL cert maybe the issue, Iam none the less waiting on replies from here, Fasthosts support and finances(Moving domain!).
You don't need a SSL certificate unless you want to force https, something which you could do in a later stage anyway.
First of all, take a backup of your config.php
Note the values of (as you will use those again)
$dbhost = 'xxx';
$dbport = 'xxx';
$dbname = 'xxx';
$dbuser = 'xxx';
$dbpasswd = 'xxx'
Use phpyAdmin or whichever your Control Panel offers to empty the database. (this to make sure nothing is left over from the host install)
Delete all the files in /forum
Download the phphBB3.3.0 pack from phpBB.com
and extract to your PC, keeping the whole directory structure.
Copy the extracted phpBB fileset from the /phpBB3 on your PC to /forum (keeping directory structure). (so you won't have the /phpBB3 but only the contents).
Navigate to www.technobable.com/forum/install
and perform the new install using the data from you old config.php.
to emphasise copying the contents of /phpBB3 to /forum, not the whole /phpBB3
corrected php.com to phpBB.com
