View Full Version : Can't even begin to install!

Well, I've installed twice so far, with no better results than the last two times. With the default installation, I couldn't even login with the username/password 'admin', so I made:

define('PHPDIG_ADM_AUTH','0');

...and I was finally able to get into my admin/install.php

From here I'm lost. My hostname is http://www.jeffreymorgenthaler.com and I've tried every variation of it: http://jeffreymorgenthaler.com, http://jeffreymorgenthaler.com/, jeffreymorgenthaler.com, and so on. No matter what parameters I enter (different usernames, passwords, PhpDig database names, etc.), I still get the same error message:

Can't connect to database
Verify connection datas.

What am I doing wrong? I checked with my host, and PHP and MySql are definitely enabled on my site.

Can someone please help?

Thanks in advance.

Hi. Look in the connect.php file and make sure that the following are set correctly. The < and > symbols should not be there when done.

define('PHPDIG_DB_PREFIX','<dbprefix>');
define('PHPDIG_DB_HOST','<host>');
define('PHPDIG_DB_USER','<user>');
define('PHPDIG_DB_PASS','<pass>');
define('PHPDIG_DB_NAME','<database>');

Well, I finally installed the database from scratch via my webhost interface, and when I re-ran install.php and created the tables, they appeared! Finally!

Now, when I go to /index.php, I get the following error message:

Warning: main(config/config.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/html/index.php on line 3

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'config/config.php' (include_path='.:/php/includes:/usr/share/php') in /var/www/html/index.php on line 3

However, when I go to /search.php, the page comes up.

Hi. PhpDig doesn't come with config/config.php. Did you upload the files while keeping the same names and directory structure that came with PhpDig?

You know, I've been moving a lot of stuff back and forth like a moron. I see what you mean about line 3. Is index.php generated by the install? I don't see it in my original .zip file, otherwise I'd just replace it.

Hi. No, admin/index.php is not generated by install.php. Perhaps FTP the files again from a fresh download, keeping the same names and directory structure.

Hey, it works! This is great, thank you so much! I'm not getting a lot of results when I dig... is there a search depth I should be using?

Okay, I've got it working perfectly now. Thank you so much for your help... on to the next phase!!
