install.php doesn't show up in browser. I get "Page cannot be displayed." This is only the second step in the installation instructions and it doesn't work? Please help.

I had a similar problem. In config.php i changed this line

define('PHPDIG_ADM_AUTH','1'); //Activates/deactivates the authentification functions


define('PHPDIG_ADM_AUTH','0'); //Activates/deactivates the authentification functions

that worked with me.

Better set it back after you're done !

Good luck,

That didn't work. Page cannot be displayed. I am trying to pull up install.php from the admin directory. Please help?

Hm, so it seems not to be an authentication problem like mine.
Sorry, i'm a bit of a newbe too. Hope one of the 'cracks' will read this thread.

Hi. Do you mean that you get a 404 "Page cannot be displayed" message?

The page cannot be displayed

Hi. What's the link?

Hi. Oops, erase erase. That's not a 404. It looks like a server issue because http://www.jaspergifts.com/cgi-bin/ is also giving the same "Cannot find server or DNS Error" message (see at the botton of the page).

Ok thanks. I will look into this and get back.

Okay I can see the page now but had to move it out of the cgi-bin.

Another question. I am used to making a database...or at least starting it in Plesk. Do I make the shell and then use the install.php?

What do I put in the form fields. It is not all that obvious. "Specify a valid existing user who can create databases if you choose create or update." Does this mean I make the shell and specify host name and user?

okay it says

Can't create database.
Verify user's rights.

But... When I look at the databaser in phpmyadmin all the tables seem to be there?

I named the user and the phpdig database the same thing - phpdig - I would think this is okay.

Maybe it is set up?

If it is how do I exclude some directories and what is the next step?

If it isn't set up what can I do to check?

Hi. Some hosts allow users to create new databases while other hosts don't allow this. If you cannot create a new database, you can setup the tables in an existing database. If the tables are there, then just make sure that the information in connect.php matches the database information, and then enter a URL and click the dig this button.
