I start with an apology, there must be hundreds of questions on this but I cannot find the answer ~ I want.
My webspace was upgraded to PHP 8 and of course, the forum I was hosting for someone stopped working. I tried upgrading it and that failed.
I then decided to create a new forum from scratch, and after 3 different downloads I found none initiate the setup process when I go to the root folder. Some talk about a dashboard folder that is not in the root folder..
So I am not an expert in these matters by a huge margin but I did set up a Vanilla forum under PHO 7.2 so not totally incompetent.
Can anyone help me with a download that works for someone like me?
