Problem Installing Thread View Count

Installing this addon resulted in this error message


Looking at the server error log. I see this error


This problem occurred on both of my testing forums. Also looking at the file directories, I do see a setup.php file in /src/addons/Andy/ThreadViewCount so I am not sure why there is a problem finding it.

Thank you for looking into it and letting me know what to do :)

I just downloaded it. It's there:


Please start all over again as something went wrong when you were copying the files to your server.
The file (setup.php) is on my server in the right place. I will upload all the files again and try to install it again. Let you know how it went.

Keep in mind that it's Setup.php not setup.php, the case is important.
I tried it again and same problem. Here is what I did if it helps

  1. Deleted the plugin from the server by deleting the directory /src/addons/Andy/ThreadViewCount
  2. Download a fresh copy of the plugin from the resource page
  3. Unzip the file
  4. Uploaded the src directory to the forum root directory on the server without modification
  5. Try to install and the error comes up.

Also if it helps I copied the stack trace from the browser console
