View Full Version : MySQL Ignorance
Ignorance is no excuse, they say. I fully agree and that is why I am appealing to you experts for you help!
I am adding an online forum to my website. It is already downloaded and tried to upload it to MySQL database but sent it to htdocs instead. How can I transfer it to MySQL?

I am far from an expert but I will try to help. Was this an existing board already running? If not then you don't transfer the board code to the MySQL server.
The board itself is on your server and you can use ftp to put it there. The only thing that goes on the MySQL server is the database.
If you use the installer in Ops. It installs it on your site and the installer sets up the database on the MySQL server.
Thank you, omegaman66.
I followed your instructions and my phpBB was installed successfully.
