  • [Forum] I can't login to my forum!!

    Hi guys,

    OK so I completely re-installed my forum today. I deleted EVERYTHING from the last installation. I want to start afresh.

    Anyway, running the installation script went fine - no problems.
    When redirecting me back to the admin cp (at the end of the installation) it keeps giving me the following error:

    Warning:  require_once(DIR/includes/functions_login.php) [function.require-once]:  failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /myforum/public_html/forum/login.php  on line 42
    Fatal error:  require_once() [function.require]:  Failed opening required 'DIR/includes/functions_login.php'  (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /myforum/public_html/forum/login.php  on line 42
    Does anyone know what I've done wrong?!

    Thanks for any help.

    You might need to chmod the all the files and folders to 0755. If it's not that the files themselves could be messed up, you would need to re-upload all the vbulletin files.

      When deleting the old version all I do is remove all the forum files from the FTP, correct?

      Then when I want to reinstall all I do is upload the files again to 'public_html/forum' and then run the install script?

      Is that right or am I missing something?

        Hard to say what happened regarding error messages, I'm assuming everything in your config file has been checked and uploaded to the correct directory?

          I keep a copy of my config.php file on my computer so instead of editing a fresh copy I just uploaded that one and have never had issues until uninstalling/reinstalling today.

          Am I meant to delete the old MYSQL database and create a new one?

            Well my host fixed it for me.
            I have no idea what was wrong.
            Thanks for the help anyway guys.

              I have the exact same error message at the exact same step, and it's a new install.

                What stands out to me is the "DIR" part in the filepaths.... I don't think that should be there but I don't know how to fix it.

                  I tried manually removing all the appearances of DIR in the files, but that didn't work =/
