i want to reinstall XOOPS on my machine. is deleting the whole folder enough? I tried renaming it, hooping that when i fo to ../html, it will redirect me to the install page. but somehow it knows that it's already installed in this machine. please help!

Well two things to consider when wanting to start over from scratch. Maybe three.

1. When you installed XOOPS and started using it you were reminded to delete the install folder. That folder would need to be replaced to re-install.

2. Mainfile.php has the paths defined already. This also is part of the install process.

3. If your database already exist, with tables, you will receive an error when you reach that point of the install script. So either delete the tables and contents or create a new database for XOOPS.

HTH.

Hi. Do I need to reinstall if I change paths in mainfile.php only? Is that enough?

You can change the path in mainfile.php manually or with the install script.

The main job that the install script does is create and populate tables in your database.

So yes, if your path changed, just edit mainfile.php manually no need to run the install script.

Hi. Thanks for responding. But another error seems to have come up. I discovered that my server is not runnign my php scripts but instead, only displays the script itself, just like the one on top.

I replaced my motherboard with a new one, without reformatting my hard disk. Could that have caused this?

I tried reinstalling PHP, and Apache. Apache seems to be working, however, it does not run my script. I'm stuck!
