I have re-edited the forums/admincp/index.php file several times and re-uploaded it and still I don't have the gallery in the admincp. Any ideas as to what happened? It was there when the install script logged me into the Admincp but now it is gone.
No I just went and edited the original file in /forums/admincp/index.php with the construct_nav stuff again and uploaded it to /forums/admincp/index.php and still the same thing. I am confused because it was there when I was logged in from the install script and I added in the path for the uploaded files and changed a bunch of settings. But now when I log back in it is gone and I hadn't changed anything in between.
Ok I just noticed that the url I am going to when logging into the admincp is /forums/admin/index.php I manually set it to /forums/admincp/index.php and of course I have the Gallery in there. Now why would I be going to the wrong location?
Because you set it so? =)
The vB install pack does not have a admin folder. A folder with that name does not exist in the Gallery install and is not created by Gallery.
My best guess is that you changed your admincp location from "forum/admincp/" to "forum/admin/" during the vB installation procedure.
Check your forum/includes/config.php and see what values have you set there for the admincp.
I must have been in Binary mode when I downloaded the config.php so it was corrupted hence the database error so I downloaded the .new file (in ASCII mode). Added all the dbase info and other stuff that was in the origanal one. Uploaded it making sure to be in ASCII mode. And that was the problem. I also made sure that it was admincp in there and that fixed this problem thank you very much
