Hi,
there's a small error in the installation script. after finishing installation the setup does not go to the installation directory where the login.php resides. Instead it tries to find it directly in the www-root which will cause a 404 message. Could cause some irritation for 1st time installers Wink
bye
Ken

Uhm... WWW_ROOT is where the forum was installed to no, so the login.php should be found there, no?

I'll try to install a forum few times to see if I can replicate this, but I have not seen this bug before. Could you tell me where were you installing the forum relative to the web path of the install.php script?

Thanks.

hm, ok here's my setting in a nutshell:
Apache 1.3.23 with Php 4.2.1 and MySQL 3.23.50 running on RH 7.3. I know the default 1.3.23 was faulty with php but I use the patched RedHat version which is not affected (hence no need to update for me Wink)
I installed it to /home/httpd/forum2. My hidden dir was /home/httpd/forum2-hidden. The forum's URL is http://mytestserver/forum2/ Now the expected result of the setup should be that the installer looks for the login.php in http://mytestserver/forum2/login.php. But actually it expected it at http://mytestserver/login.php and this is why i got the 404 message. I hope u can reproduce it now, because else it would mean that I screwed up PHP when compiling it Confused .
bye
Ken

Hmm I tried replicating the bug on a test machine, but I cannot, it seems to work fine.

Could yoou tell me if your register_globals are ON or OFF and is your safe_mode enabled or not?

Thanks

Register Globals were turned on and Safe Mode was off. I can try to reproduce the bug myself by making a fresh install.

Please do and let me know, I'll try to reproduce it myself again as well.

If/when you will be trying to replicate the bug, please save the HTML source of every install step and send it to me with your bug report if the problem persists.

Blah... we found it, and we fixed it... Ken was right, it was a bug. But now it's gone.

Anyway, latest install.php as always can be found in the CVS.

If you know how to use cvs, great check it out (refer to earlier threads on how to do exactly that)

Or you can always use the webcvs!
http://cvs.prohost.org/c/viewcvs.cgi/

enjoy....

Hi hackie,
I'm already familiar with CVS because I use it for several other stuff I like to compile regularly. But thnx for letting me know that the error wasn't the result of a faulty PHP compilation Smile
PS: Forum works fine with the German Pspell as well, but the dictionary is very incomplete so it may not be terrificly useful (unlike the English version) Confused
Bye Ken
