Nevermind! I figured it out all by myself! I uploaded my original backup files and my forum worked normally. Then I discovered how to upload the Ad Mod and then let the forum install it and everything works fine now. As Homer Simpson would say, "DOH!"
My original question follows:
Hello everyone. I did a Fantastico install through the Control Panel of my webhost yesterday and I installed SMF v.1.1.7. Everything worked great.
Next, I downloaded ad_mod_1-1-x_v2-3.zip, unzipped it and I followed all of the instructions at: Ad Management mod - Installation Instructions for 1.1.7
located at: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=parse
I followed the find and replace/add steps very carefully and the file operations too, then I uploaded the edited files. But I'm stuck at the Code install.php step.
My SMF forum now says: Database Error
Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator.
So, I went to the Control Panel of my webhost and I used their phpMyAdmin to Run SQL query/queries on database to do the 6 queries and I get the error listed up in the subject line. Can anyone help me fix this?
