Summary0027945: Can't fine /admin/install.php at first login

I just installed a new Mantis Bitnami VM; I exported the old MySQL DB from my previous Mantis installation (2.5) and put it in the new MySQL.

When I access Mantis, it says it has to update the db and sends me to /admin/instll.php but that file is missing!

TagsNo tags attached.

This is not a bug or feature request for MantisBT (you are asking for help on how to configure the system). I am therefore resolving this issue as "no change required".

Please use the forums to get support on customizing and using MantisBT (refer to for links and further details).

To solve your issue, download an original Mantis 2.24.4 and copy the contents of the missing folder to your installation

Mantis Bitnami VM

This is provided by Bitnami, not the MantisBT team.
I suppose they removed the folder due to security reasons, as this is what we recommend in our Admin Guide.
