Problem with Installation


I have done everithing wich is detailled in the configuration documentation

config_change_it.php --> config.php
data directory is now $data_dir="data_uvgvh/";

I have created to directories on my web server
cache_uvgvh and data_uvgvh

And when I go on my site it displays

Welcome to phpAlbum
You have to edit config_change_it.php and rename it to config.php.
You have to define data directory, because of security issues it is recommended that this is not data/ but something like "data_Ab6Lkj88KJ/"

What is wrong ?

But you have to use relative paths in config.php and in Setup->Main Setup for the photos and cache directory if they are in phpAlbum directory...
