Default Installation Help Please - File Upload!

From the Wiki -
Quote:
Upload the contents of the upload/forums folder to your forums directory

A
On my hosting plan I have a folder called public_html. In the folder called public_html, there is a folder called admincp.

B
In the GAZ file structure I have; upload > forums > admincp > gaz_admin.php

I have uploaded the gaz_admin.php (from B) to the admincp folder (in A). Is that the correct location for the gaz_admin.php file?



C
In the GAZ file structure I have; upload > forums > geek > gaz which contains 4 other folders (clientscript, includes, modules, test).

I'm using FileZilla. Do I simply need to upload the "geek" folder to the public_html folder on my hosting account?

Thanks!

The gaz_admin.php file goes into the forum Admin CP directory, the one you named in the vBulletin config.php file. The other files and directories go like this:
  • forumdisplay.php
  • /geek
    • /gaz
      • /clientscript
        • gaz_admin.js
        • gaz_ajaz.js
        • index.htm
      • and so forth...

Morgan, thanks for your reply. Very sorry but I'm not a technical person and I don't understand your instructions for the file upload.

I've moved the "Geek" folder to underneath the "public_html" folder on my forum hosting account. The "public_html" includes my forums "forumdisplay.php" page. I've uploaded the xml file and it is showing in the list of product's I've installed.

However; GAZ is not showing up as a menu item in my ACP and I get a 404 error when I go to http://www.businessadviceforum.com/newsletter.php and http://www.businessadviceforum.com/geek/newsletter.php

What am I doing wrong?

Unfortunately it's proving difficult to get support for this product here. I'll look elsewhere and see if I can pay someone to install it for me.

Hi Fergal.

Where did you upload the newsletter.php file???
You say you are looking both
http://www.businessadviceforum.com/newsletter.php and http://www.businessadviceforum.com/geek/newsletter.php
The best way to look to try the URL is where you uploaded it.

Since you forum is in the root of your site (public_htm)
your newsletter.php file should be uploaded in the root as well and
it should work here:
http://www.businessadviceforum.com/newsletter.php

henrikhansen, thanks for your help. I'm paying someone to install it and it is now installed. We'll try some test newsletters and I'll post back if there are any further issues.
