I'm currently using Ontrack's PowerDesk for all my zipped and compressed file needs. When I extract the zip or the tarball file with PowerDesk neither one produces the new forum_install directory as mentioned in the user guide. I went ahead and created a new directory called forum_install on my server and loaded all newly extracted files there. When I accessed the install.php via my browser, I got the following message(path is correct by the way):

Fatal error: Call to unsupported or undefined function ini_set() in /home/soupaint/southernpainting-www/forum_install/install.php on line 19

I'm clueless! thanks!!

When you decompressed the files, were all the files decompressed into 1 directory or was the directory structure inside the archive maintained?

That would be the problem.

You need to decopress the archive in such a way so that the directory structure inside the archive is preserved.

Ok I dug thru the PowerDesk docs and found the settings I needed to change to make that happen and it did. Yippee! Uploaded the directory forum_install with all its files and sub directories intact, and still get the exact same message when I run the install.php file from my browser. I'm very inexperienced with shell processes and that is why I'm trying it with my browser.

here is the error again:
Fatal error: Call to unsupported or undefined function ini_set() in /home/soupaint/southernpainting-www/forum_install/install.php on line 19


thanks for your time..

Okie, the reason you're getting the error you're seeing could a result of 2 problems.

1) Your php is too old, ini_set() function was introduced in PHP 4.0

2) Your web host has disabled ini_set() function.

If you could create a sample script:
[code]
<?php
phpinfo();
?>

and give me a url to it, I'd be able to tell you which one of the above is causing this problem.
