    Everything going well.
    I have this warning but not quite sure what to do?

    Warning

    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.

    Which install directory is it on about?

    The directions were, as are the rest of the setup guides, excellent with on exception. The last step should be too remove the ‘install’ folder from within the phpBB3 directory.

    Where is the Most Common Error Section of the WAMP setup guide you that’s mentioned in step 11. I keep getting the error (#2003 – Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘localhost’ (10061)) when I try to open pHpMyAdmin. Further if someone can help resolve this issue please do so.

    Thanks Very Much.

      Donald, make sure you’ve already set exception for wamp in all firewalls/antivirus, search and delete any file my.ini outside wamp folder, and the path for phpmyadmin in file phpmyadmin.conf is correct, …
      there are many things to list, so try these first ;)
