    Ok I have just uploaded the latest Ipb v1.2 to my server and the only way I can access the main page is with http://argyleparktaxis.co.uk/forum2/upload/index.php?

    I'm slightly worried about the /upload/ part of the url.....is this normal?

    I have noticed on other Ipb address that the /upload/ is not part of the url

    By the way I also have another board on the server...could this be the reason?

    Thx in advance
    Alan

    you just uploaded the contents of the zipfile didnt you

    Unzip it on your machine, go into the directory it unzipped to, rename the folder "upload" to "forums" of "forum2" then upload that folder then you should get
    http://argyleparktaxis.co.uk/forum2/

    Thx Geffy

    Everything seems to be sitting in a folder called upload .....if I just load up the contents of that folder will I have to reset all the topics...or will it stay the same.....the board hasn't gone live yet so its no huge problem, just a pain in the a$$

    Thanks again
    Alan

    Everything in the upload folder should be in the forum2 folder.
