Need help uploading

Hey everyone.
I'm uploading my site once again. A friend put in two folders , on of which was data and the other I cannot remember. Can anyone please help me?

Thank you.

Can you describe the whole uploading procedure? Posting a screenshot of your forum folder or files in ftp will help too.

Uploading files is not enough, you must restore a backup of the database too. Or is this a fresh installation?

The server is missing the MySQLi extension.
You will have to install it or contact your host and ask them to.

The installation instructions I linked to explain what you need to do for the two directories.
The screenshot above is for a file, not a directory.

Did you recurse the permissios into the folder , or just the folder ?

Regarding the mySQLi , open a ticket with your host and ask for it.
