If you still haven’t figured out this issue, its rather simple. Apache created a bit different file structure for it’s default serving location than one described in guide. Instead of it being /var/www/index.html where you copied and made forum folder it is actually /var/www/html/index.html Basically one additional folder was added hence when you try to start forum installation and visit IP/forum/install it doesn’t load. Just move your forum folder from /var/www/ to /var/www/html/
