View Full Version : Grr, not working

OK this script looked pretty cool so I downloaded it to see what it is capable of. Unfortunately the installation doesn't seem to have done much.

First I tried to run the normal script. That just came up with 500 errors.

Now I have tried doing it manually and I get to the bit where you have to go to the /search.php file and I get the following error.

Unable to connect to database : Check the connection script.

The config in the connect.php file is this


will having the username and the db name annoy anything

Ok sorted it out now. Obviously having them the same does effect things.

Ok, new problem now, it doesn't allow me into administration

Hi, and welcome to PhpDig.net.

Do you get a popup box asking for a username and password? If not, what happens if you set PHPDIG_ADM_AUTH to zero in the config file and protect the admin directory another way such as htaccess?

I do get a popup box thing. When I set the value to 0 I can get straight there.

Hi. Okay, set PHPDIG_ADM_AUTH back to one and then set the username and password in the config file. The default username and password are admin/admin.

When I type the password in it just asks for it again

Hi. Are you typing the username/password the same case as in the config file? If so, what is your OS/setup?

03-01-2004, 12:22 PM
Yeah. I am on a RedHat9 server with Apache 1.4 I think.

My phpinfo file is here www.blueuniverse.co.uk/info.php

Hi. It looks like your PHP is in CGI mode. From the documentation...

Authentification doesn't operate with a CGI php. In this case, uses an .htaccess file in order to protect the [PHPDIG_DIR]/admin directory.
