Issues with new Install

Hi - I was hoping to avoid posting here as I know Ray has been away, not sure if anyone else might be able to help?

I downloaded the most recent version of PowerCMS2 from
I installed that on my site. When I went to /install_cms/ it forwarded to admin_cms/index.php with the error "no such directory".

I then decided to manually add my database info in the Connections.php when I went back to install_cms/ it gave me a new error: There is a problem with your MySQL syntax (the database is empty). That database was mySQL 8, so I changed to MySQL5 but got the same message.

I then switched back to MySQL8, and imported a database from another client site that is using PowerCMS2...that worked to bring it up/login, but the manage users page comes up blank and I can't delete pages in PowerCMS to customize it to this new site.

Are there instructions anywhere for doing a fresh install on a new site? It has been awhile, but I thought it was just loading the files and going to the install_cms/ folder to start the wizard? Any help is appreciated!
