    i couldnt login as admin so i just reinstalled but im having problems getting my old config with the old tables on there

    you have to make new tables when you install it, and if i change the tables in the config to the old one i need it just kills the forum and i get an error

    the ones on the bottom are the ones i had to make when installing, and the ones rite above are my old ones it wont let me use

    What error do you get? I assume this is because you chose to have a db prefix for the new install which wasn't there for the older install. Back up the tables and try renaming the old tables so that they have the new prefix (phpbbfmk instead of fmk) before their names.

    Yeah but be sure to backup your db first.

    Said it all. You just have to rename those old tables. If u had the database access then why u reinstalled it. U could have easily change the password hash to ur password generated hash.
