XF 1.1 Should I delete Install directory?

Hi All,

I thought I should delete the install directory, and so I deleted it even there's no instruction mentioning it. Until today I did a File Health Check, it told me all the potential problems involved were all "File not found." specifically for the Install directory that was deleted by me.

Should I reupload the Install directory using the XF .zip file that can be downloaded in my client area? Thanks. :)

It is different, not always in a bad way. Though it takes some getting used too.
And that is why I love XF :D

Anyone if you know how exactly the Install directory should be placed back into my forum root, please let me know! Thanks!

Upload the original install directory from the zip file. Nothing special.

The install script is locked out by the creation of the internal_data/install-lock.php file when you run the install.

So if I upload the install directory now, it will automatically be locked again? Since my forum installation was done few weeks ago. Thanks :)
