ok so i try installin a forum for my mate and this is what happends:
have you tried the "Server" as localhost ???
yes i have!
For install path, how about just htdocs/forum ?
What host are you with ???
Please check Installing SMF (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?board=2.0;sort=subject)
If not, contact your host and ask your MySQL databasename, username and password as i dont see emails being the server...
If not, contact me and ill try and help
im using the host: zymic
and thats the ftp adress tehy gave me with the @ sign..
Possibly a path problem.
the path needs to be the path from where you are when you login to FTP to where your SMF folder is.
For example, if your forum is in /var/www/sitename/htdocs/forums, but you start in /sitename. Then your path would be /htdocs/forums.
it not a full path, but a relative path
ah I see..
I enter that too but it still doesn't work. I entered : /htdocs/forums
well, that was just an example... when you login to FTP, its the path from where you begin until you reach your forum folder.
Have you had any luck with this as of yet. ???
