    I have uploaded all files, everey time the board will new install :(

    First upload my FTP Client (Transmit) delete files on server before uploading.

    My second upload I used Filezilla but url/install will now install new xf and will overwrite database.

    Uploading old xf 1.0.1 not success because install not complete (lock file is deleted)

    what can I do?

    You can create a internal_data/install-lock.php (empty) and that's all that's needed. (You may need to recreate your config.php too).

    I should note that you may have lost avatars and attachments, if your data and internal_data directories are missing. You'd have to restore those from a backup.

    It sounds as if you may need to upload the files again.
    It's possible there were some problems during the FTP process.

    I just had something similar, I was upgrading from 1.0.0 to the latest version and upload the files with Transmit but it looks like they deleted something as it forced me to do a clean install.
