Fresh install keeps throwing Fatal Error

edited February 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.2

Hello Vanilla!

I have been trying to install the forum since yesterday but all my attempts have gone in vain. The installation works fine but the problem I am experience pertains to the root folder of where Vanilla is installed. Upon accessing the root, I am redirected to index.php?p=/dashboard/setup and there I get the error which you can view in the attached screenshot.

I have already tried reinstalling it quote a number of times and even tried messing with the default .htaccess file. I would like to inform you, the forum is installed in a sub folder named /talk/ and I have WordPress on the main site. I am using the default .htaccess file found in the forum's package. Here are the details: <- WordPress <- Forum

So whenever I try accessing, I am being redirected to and getting that Fatal Error.

Please advice what I could be doing wrong?


Best Regards,
