Problems installing PHPNuke 6.7

P: n/a
Hi folks,

I downloaded PHP-Nuke 6.7, and after reading the INSTALL file, it
looks very simple... but either i'm reading them wrong or they're very
flawed.

First, it says:

Untar the package into the directory you want to use on you web
server, if you're unsure where that is, ask you system administrator.

I use /usr/local/www/htdocs, so I untared the file here. On htdocs,
there's some misc files - INSTALL, README, TODO, etc - then the
directories html/, sql/, and upgrades/.

From this point in the installation process, it keeps refering to
files in the html directory, but it never says to go into this
directory Then it says to run http://whatever/admin.php, but if
instructions are followed correctly, it'd be
http://whatever/html/admin.php.

I can live with this minor flaw, but once the product is up and going,
nothing works. Clicking on Forum gives me this error:
Template->make_filename(): Error - file
../../templates/subSilver/admin/index_frameset.tpl does not exist

Clicking on almost any module gives me this error:
Sorry, such file doesn't exist...

What did I do wrong??? I followed the instructions verbatum. I also
did run the sql code below:
mysqladmin create nuke
mysql nuke < nuke.sql

And these installed fine.

So can someone let me know what I did wrong? Thanks for any
assistance, and sorry if I sound a bit rash. PHPNuke is a wonderful
product and I have used it in the past... but minor problems like this
really make it impossible to use.

Thanks,

Keegan.

well I don't know if that causes the problem, but you only have to upload
the html directory into your htdocs dir. The others dirs in your package are
just for installing and reading, and are not used by phpNuke itself

Just a quick follow-up. I just downloaded PHPNuke 6.6 to see if maybe
the instructions were flawed in 6.7, and they're almost identical.
Okay, this makes me thing I'm doing something wrong, but I've read and
re-read the insallation instructions. They seem so simple, even a
newbie can figure them out... but I sware it's not working for me.

Can someone give any pointers? The instructions clearly say to untar
the PHP-Nuke tar file to the web directory, yet all the files are in
the html/ subfolder. I've tried hitting this folder -
http://localhost/html/admin.php - and so forth, but I continue to get
the errors discribed above. I've tried both 6.6 and 6.7 on two
different systems with the same results.

Please, if someone has any pointers, please let me know. Thanks,

Keegan.
