View Full Version : Error 500

09-20-2005, 08:33 PM
I am trying to go to the install.php and getting an internal server error 500.

I did a search and could find an answer.

I checked my phpinfo and looks ok...

What version of PhpDig are you trying to install? What versions of PHP and MySQL are you using? What type of OS are you running? Without more info... :confused:

I am running PHP Version 4.4.0 on a linux serve, red hat os.

Thanks for the help

What version of MySQL are you running? Is your PHP mbstring enabled? If you call domain.com/dir/phpdig_logo_2.gif via your browser, do you get the 500 error (that GIF is in the main PhpDig directory)? If you change PHPDIG_ADM_AUTH from one to zero in the config file, do you still get the 500 error when trying to access install? Still trying to narrow it down... ;)

I get the 500 just by going to the phpdig directory I setup, I then change the ADM_AUTH to zero and still get the 500...

I'm running mysql version 4.1.13

Sounds like it could be the htaccess file. Try sticking a # in front of each line, in various combinations, to see if one of the lines in the htaccess file is the cause.

Putting the # in front of PHP_VALUE mbstring.encoding_translation On

Did it.

Is it ok to run like this?

09-21-2005, 10:36 AM
Actually I had to put a # in front of all the actions

# start htaccess file
#PHP_VALUE default_charset UTF-8
#PHP_VALUE mbstring.func_overload 0
#PHP_VALUE mbstring.encoding_translation On
# end htaccess file

I'm gong to run the install script.. is this ok?

I'm now getting this error which I think is due to the version of php

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mb_eregi() in /home/odyssey/public_html/phpdig/includes/config.php on line 109

The thread I found on this error was old and no real answer.. any fix?

I appreciate your help

Your PHP is not mbstring enabled. You need to enable mbstring capabilities for PhpDig 1.8.8 RC1 to work. Once enabled you should see something like "'--enable-mbstring' '--enable-mbstr-enc-trans' '--enable-mbregex'" in the top part of your PHP info page. After you get PHP mbstring enabled, set the htaccess file back to original form. There are instructions here (http://www.php.net/mbstring) and here (http://www.php.net/manual/en/install.unix.php#install.unix.apache). If you don't have permission to rebuild PHP with mbstring then you'll need to use PhpDig 1.8.7 instead.

Ok, I'm going to try version 1.8.7 and see if that works. I assume I will have to change the htaccess again.. I'll give it a try and let you know.

Now I'm getting

Can't connect to database
Verify connection datas.

I created the user and using the right prefix and password. I can manually create the tables and database if that is all this install script is doing?

Actually with the right username and password I get:

Can't connect to database
Verify connection datas.
