Thank you for the reply, I had done something wrong but the installation instructions may need to be updated as well.
I had put the gallery folder inside of the forum folder but that still wasn't the problem.
In the installation instructions where it tells you to run the script
Now you're almost done! It's time to add the PhotoPost vBGallery settings and templates. Run the install script from your browser by going to h**p://yoursite.com/forum/admincp/vbagallery_install.php.
I think that h**p://yoursite.com/forum/admincp/vbagallery_install.php
should be h**p://yoursite.com/forum/admincp/vbgallery_install.php
The file that came with my download for the admincp folder is vbgallery_install.php.
Thankfully your post helped me realize that I had put the gallery folder in the wrong place but the link to install the gallery was still throwing me off!
Everything has been installed now and I'll post if I have any more troubles.
