I find one but it was the one to transfer from v1 to v2 and after it fail I been unable to refind it. ayway, maybe I'm a bit new into this but guys the tutorials and explanation are really not clear and precise.

    Let's see if I understand:

    You wanted to transfer all your posts from vanilla 1 to vanilla 2
    You used the Porter application and tried to import using the dashboard
    that failed and now you emptied the database and want to re-install?

    (I hope that's what you mean with the config blue page). In the case you want to reinstall you want to add

    dashboard/setup

    to your Url, so it will be:

    http://www.mysite.com/dashboard/setup

    Just make absolutely sure you want to re-install. Why not try to fix your broken install? There are plenty of options for that.

    If you mean the dashboard, that's something else. In case of the dashboard you want to add

    dashboard/settings

    to your Url, so it will be:

    http://www.mysite.com/dashboard/settings

    422 and I will be helping you in turn, ok :-)

    This message:

    Freida said: 51: // Fatal error if Garden has already been installed.

    52:

    53: $Installed = Gdn::Config('Garden.Installed') ? TRUE : FALSE;

    54: if ($Installed)

    55: throw new Exception('Vanilla has already been installed.');

    56:
    means that Vanilla thinks it's already installed. Is that because you tried to import from Vanilla1?

    I Install for the first time, and it on my server, but there is adreally a website in my public directory, I put it both in my main directory and a subdirectory so tell me what is the best to keep.

    Do you have a special website in your public directory? Having nothing to do with Vanilla?

    If Vanilla thinks it's already installed you have the option to re-install (please backup the database in which you want to install vanilla first, ok)

    If you want to re-install I will tell you the change you need to make in your conf/config.php

    If you want to install in, let's say... /home/********/public_html/vanilla let's see if that will give the same result.

    @422 : your turn :-P

    I think he either has conflicting files , pre existing htaccess rules , cocked up the upload ie. Not uploaded all files correctly, or has inadvertantly messed up his db info.

    If you trust me, send me your ftp info via email and i will install for you.
