Problem with installing the vanilla forums the second time ( worked fine on first time ).
Greetings , let me introduce my self first. I am a app & game developer. Nice to meet you all , i am planning to open a site where i can sell games, apps , fonts , sounds, graphics.
I want vanilla forums to be integrated in my site that i am working on as well as magneto . I am not really a web developer , but i have basic to medium knowledge.
****The first time i installed it was a success and everything was working fine, but i didn't want to have it on my example.com , so i made a forums folder inside to make it work like (forums.example.com) and put all the files in that and suddenly i was greeted with something went wrong . I couldn't access the dashboard or anything. I tried all the solutions on net , didn't work. Then i removed all the files and all the tables that were made in the database by vanilla and from that point nothing works anymore. I tried to re upload all the files but everytime, i either have a something went wrong or a blankish white page with the setup fields.
***I tried vanilla 2.0 , it worked had that blue page and i was able to go through the setup and i had the dashboard and all and tables were created to in my database but when i click on any tabs like plugin or start a discussion nothing works all blank page or partial pages with small fields. I seriously don't know what i should do to make it work again...
** Currently i am trying PHPBB for an alternative solution , but at the end i really want vanilla forums. So , if someone could help me would be really appreciated.
EDIT : My web host has PHP 7.1 and UTF 8 and mysql ..mariaDB .
