    When I let X-Skin Cpanel install phpBB --

    1. Are there any other updates I need to run?

    2. I assume I should remover the install file -- is that a correct assumption?

    3. What about the upgrade.php and update_to_202.php -- should that file also be removed from the server?

    Any other tips I should know of?

    It leaves the install file for sure. It also has a upgrade file.

    You can safely remove all 3 files. Looks like Cpanel does a default install and non-removal of those files is part of it. BTW, does it still install into a &XMB& dir. That's one glaring mistake as nobody had previously bothered to change the text/coding for that.

    Yup -- and it also still uses a XMB database name and password too.

    Worst yet -- it totally trashed another XMB Bulletin Board by using the database that was already in use and not giving me the chance to cancel. First see a message fly by saying database was in use -- then a message saying that the board was successfully installed.

    Bam -- the new board fires up and the old board is gone.

    I think the phpBB is much better (after having almost all of the XMBs hacked into) but a little tweaking on the installation will save a lot of people a lot of headaches.
