Hello,

I am trying to install the forum on my hosted server. From what I know the php version is 4.4.2. I ran into several issues with the install and I had the administrator change some of the parameters to accommodate my install. He told me that the install script is creating the .htaccess file automatically when passed step 1. (I removed manually several times)

Is there anyway I can stop the script from creating this file or is it needed for the install?

FYI - I get to step 2 of 5 then I input the DB info and hit next and get an internal server error.

Thanks,

Ajay

If you have .htaccess already or allow_url_fopen is disabled .htaccess file will not be created. Alternatively you can modify install.php and add define('old_htaccess', 1); somewhere near the top.

I have tried adding that bit of code on the top of the install file but .htaccess was still create and it still crashed during the install. Do you think .htaccess is the reason why it's not installing? What are the other possible issues that could cause this?

I have asked the adminstrators at my hosting company to set allow_url_fopen to disabled and was told it was already set!

Should I get the Administrators to enable allow_url_fopen for the install?

Thanks for your reply.

Ajay

Try to apply the following patch to the installer script

I have altered the coding in the "htaccess_handler" function and the .htaccess is still being created. I have attached 2 screen shot one my install and one of a snip-it of code I edited (as instructed).

I kind of lost now and not sure what my next step should be.

If you have define(old_htaccess) in the installer you need to remove it.

Quick and smart thinking. That’s exactly what I forgot to alter.

Thanks a bunch.
