    Help fixing phpBB troubles

    Hello, Im a noob with fourms and I keep getting this error?

    Install phpBB2 (2/3)

    The installation can not be completed:

    - No valid directory name provided.

    Click on the browser's Back button to fix reported errors.

    I think im doing some thing wrong. Im trying to install it inside my public_html is that where it goes. I dont want it to be in my root directory I want it to be in my sub. Do you have to create your sub directory? If so please tell me how. Thanks!

    creating directory

    You can create a directory using your host's control panel or with an FTP app.
    For example, with cPanel, go to the file system and navigate to the public html folder. Click create directory and enter a name in the text input. Set permissions for the install, and reset them after the install after deleting the contrib and install folders.
