                  problems with step 6 in install

                  Good evening...I installed the lite version of the forum with no problems...but when I tried to install the full fersion of version 1.1.3 I can call up the install.PHP and make it through all the steps but it hangs on step 6 with this message in the browser window:
                  Setting up templates...

                  Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in db_mysql.php on line 69

                  I can jump ahead by manually telling nav bar in IE to go to step 7 then I can complete the setup all the way thru to admin settings....however, when you try to register as a user or post a new thread or reply you get a blank browser window in both IE and Netscape browsers....what is the problem? Lite Version seems to work fine....paid for version does not....

                  Thanks for all your help.

                    Why are you installing 1.1.3? This version hasn't been available for a very long time.

                      it was the version I had from a while back and when I switched paid for servers, they didnt support PHP, so I went with a ASP based forum then I got an email from my host saying they now support PHP so i tried to install my version I had NO luck, but lite did.....and dont know where to go for the update to version's been a long while since setting this thing up

                        The tutorial site is down

                        Is that the case or have they cancelled or the free accounts? I understand that f2s is no longer offering free accounts.

                              i'm running my own server. I'm am running MySQL & PHP & phpMyAdmin
                              i have everything setup as default.


                              i can load the install.php & it says "welcome..blah blah",
                              but it also lists many errors. Such as.. "Warning: Undefined variable: step in D:\web sites\mysite\vblite\admin\install.php on line 25"

                              i get that same error about 8 to 10 times.. each error reporting a different "line #" in install.php :(

                              can anyone help me?
