  • experienced phpBB2 user having problems w/ installation

    Since I successfully installed and used different versions of phpBB2, I thought this would be a breeze.

    I created a folder in my /public_html/ directory called vb.

    I uploaded all of the items in the "upload" folder into that directory.

    I edited the config.php file (in the admin folder) to reflect the correct database name, user & pass.

    I had already created the database & user.

    When I go to to the /vb/ URL, I get this vague error message:
    There seems to have been a slight problem with the database.
    Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.
    An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem persists.

    We apologise for any inconvenience.

    Anyone have any idea where I go from here?

    Go to /vb/admin/install.php instead.
