Hi All. I am attempting to install this for the first time, to give it a spin. I downloaded the forum_v1.2.3.tar.gz file from the latest stable. I then unpacked it and got:

hostname# ls
COPYING CVS README install.php install_data
hostname# pwd

I copied the install.php into my web server /forums/ directory and called up the install.php page in my browser. (Webserver is caudium on freebsd with PHP 4.1.2). The install step 1 asks for the directory where I unpacked everything. I put in " /space/kits/forum_install" which is the directory you can see in the "pwd" above. I click the "next" button and the install.php comes back with

"The directory you've specified does not appear to be the directory where forum sources were decompressed to."

But it is. I even did a copy and paste from a terminal window into my browser to make sure there were no typos.

I cd into that directory and look around and don't see lots of PHP code. I see some sql and some .inc files and stuff, that is it.

What did I do wrong?
