Firstly, your logging out issue looks to me like your browser isn't accepting cookies. One way would be login as admin, then run the file install to run those database tables (while still on the old board), then go and run the upgrade.sql in phpmyadmin, then upload the files to server. Delete cookies in your browser and board.
You get that
- Code: Select all
Please delete, move or rename the install directory before you use your board. If this directory is still present, only the Administration Control Panel (ACP) will be accessible.
when you try to access your board with the files still on the server. You are not accessing the board, you need to go to the correct address of yourforum/install/install.php when they have run, then delete them.
The flags looks like it has already been installed maybe prior so ignore that unless you get an error on accessing the board after.
