You only need to include the path to the forums in order to parse your configuration, if you're not looking for that functionally, just remove the path.

Placing the file in your forum folder will also populate the config parser, hence why it's recommended to install on your web root.

I may add a tick to disable parsing of the configuration, while still allowing the path to be set to allow just for a database and file version check.

Do you need Forum Install or Upgrade Services?
