Error with Install of 2.1 Beta3
« on: August 23, 2017, 02:20:32 PM »
I downloaded and tried to setup the 2.1 Beta3 on a test folder under my domain. I used FTP and set the permissions...but when I try to go to the install.php, it keeps going to my main page of my domain (not the install page in the forum folder).

I did notice that the Settings_bak.php file is missing. Not sure if that means anything.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Have you read the beta installation guide here? It seems you may be missing some step(s)
Let go of all you think others want you to be and just be who you really are.
Don't let anyone get in the way of your dreams and who you want to be. Your life is only yours to live.

It ended up being a file permissions issue. I had followed instructions...but had to try different settings till it worked.
