Your paths are probably incorrect in the geeklog/plugins/phpbbbridge/config.php file.

It doesn't even look like $_PHPBBB_CONF['path_to_phpbb'] is set. What are the contents of the file?

PHP Formatted Code
<?php

$_PHPBBB_CONF['path_to_phpbb']     = '/phpbb2/';           // Should end in a slash
$_PHPBBB_CONF['phpbb_url']         = 'http://www.projectloungelizard.com/phpbb2';  // Should not end in a slash
$_PHPBBB_CONF['show_left_blocks']  = true;
$_PHPBBB_CONF['show_right_blocks'] = false;

$_PHPBBB_CONF['version'] = '0.77';

?>

Your path_to_phpbb needs to be the FULL path. Something that starts with /home/content/l/o/u/loungelizard/html/, I'm guessing...

Why are you not using the version of phpBB that I ship with the plugin?

I am using Godaddy hosting and they had phpbb installed as a free applictaion to use and when I asked them why It would not let me install they said that I could not use install scripts and that I had to use the one they had pre installed...I asked them if they could install if for me they said no. So I am kinda stuck

Well, will you be able to run the phpBBBridge install script? If so, you are ok. Just replace all of the original phpBB files with the ones I include in the plugin.

No, but you will lose all of your users as they will be synched over from Geeklog.

Please, please read the enclosed readme. Sad

You completely skipped step 5 of the new install instructions.
