Problems with config.php, installation & database info
« on: December 30, 2002, 04:35:26 PM »
After running install.php, you get the following:
Quote
The install script is unable to write the config file "config.php" to the server. Click the button below to download a copy of the configuration file and upload this file via FTP to the 4images directory. Once this is done you should log in using the admin username and password and visit the Control Panel to check the general configuration for any required changes."

Downloaded Configuration File
You find that your config.php contains only this:
Code: [Select]
<?php 
/**************************************************************************

*************************************************************************/ 

$db_servertype 
The config.php file was somehow truncated at line 25.

SOLUTION
Copy config.new.php to config.php.  Open config.php in a text editor and enter the right values for the configuration variables.

Assuming you have the following information:

Database Host = "localhost"
Databaes User Name = "myDbUserID"
Database User Password = "myDbPassword"
Database Name = "myDatabaseName"

Your edited config.php should look like this:
Code: [Select]
<?php 
/**************************************************************************

$db_servertype "mysql"
$db_host "localhost"
$db_name "myDatabaseName"
$db_user "myDbUserID"
$db_password "myDbPassword"

$table_prefix "4images_";

define('4IMAGES_ACTIVE'1); 

?>
Upload your edited config.php to the 4images directory and proceed to http://www.YourDomain.com/4images

Hi,

look to the post from Chris!!!

you must edit your config.php with your database infos/config from your server  :!:
Cant't find a config.php => rename the config_new.php to config.php and edit this.

Thats all  8O
