Hi,
I have installed PhpBB for my new website. It is giving below error when I open the website.

Table 'imf2012_phpb1.phpbb_config' doesn't exist [1146]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.
=======================

Please help.

It says your missing the config table in the database.
So either the installer is corrupted or something else went wrong in the install process.

Try downloading a new package and re-installing.

Did you delete the old database?
Did you use a fresh download package from phpBB.com?

No, I have not deleted database.
Actually I have instelled phpBB from Fantastico earlier.
After this proble, I have removed the installation and installed again with the same Fantastico.

Then it is most likely an issue with the phpBB installer in Fantastico.

I would suggest you use a normal phpBB3 download and install from that.
There is no way to support products like Fantastico as they add their own ideas to the install packages.

You will most likely need to use a clean (empty) database regardless, as the one you have is missing the config table.
