Error in trying to start the Vanilla Forum

edited October 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 Help
I have my own domain name and I am creating a web site on a free server. I uploaded the Vanilla Forum and when trying to start it, having navigated in my browser, I got the following error: Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/a3395946/public_html/vanilla-2.0.10/vanillaforums-Garden-b8cd4b4/library/core/functions.error.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/a3395946/public_html/vanilla-2.0.10/vanillaforums-Garden-b8cd4b4/bootstrap.php on line 21. Can anyone help? Thanks
