    Hello Forum, Trying to clean install Elgg 1.9, but it keeps throwing an exception. What I did: Uploaded files to FTP (domain.com/elgg/) PHP errors with start.php Renamed the settings.example.php to settings.php Renamed...
    • What have the errors been at "2."? I would suggest trying to fix the reason for these errors (if you don't know what is causing them post at least more details about these errors).

      The installation might fail because RewriteBase in .htaccess needs to be adjusted to match the subdirectory you are installing Elgg into (for domain.com/elgg/ it would have to be RewriteBase /elgg/). So, you should create .htaccess by copy+renaming from htaccess_dist and then made this modification.

      Currently, installation fails if there's a settings.php file created manually (most likely will be fixed in Elgg 1.9.2). If you ever need to manually create or modify settings.php, you need to keep in mind that the curly brackets need to get removed, e.g. "$CONFIG->dbuser = 'username';". But this is only meant as reminder as currently it won't work with a fresh installation and a manually created settings.php.

      The file settings.php should get created during installation by Elgg automatically (it will ask for the necessary database credentials of the database you've created). The file .htaccess would also get created automatically, but if you need to make adjustments (like changing RewriteBase) you need to do this prior starting installation.

      For the installation to work you also need to provide write permission for the Elgg installation folder and the "engine" subdirectory temporarily. Easiest way would be setting 777 to be sure the webserver can write into these folders. After installation has finished you should restore the original permissions of these folders - don't forget this as write permissions for these folders are a security risk.

    • Hello iionly,

      Thank you for your help.

      The errors as stage 2 were regarding missing includes (settings.php) from the /engine/start.php file.

      I changed the RewriteBase line to /elgg/, but now I get 500 error.

      Both .htaccess and engine folders have CHMOD 777.

      It may be easier just to start again, paying attention to your suggestions.

      Thank you,

      Lee.

    Got the chat to work, and configured the settings, but I cannot type in the chat box, and there is no chat window despite setting the height being set to 600. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Lee.

    There is more to the Internet than Google. Try Bing. Why is Google being used as a verb? Why don't you use PHP Date() instead? http://www.w3schools.com/php/php_date.asp Maybe you can do something with that? Even with Asperger's you still... view reply

    DhrupDeScoop, well done for holding up the Elgg flag. If I knew about the inner workings of Elgg, then I'd be helping out too. Metadata is something I've not got to. I knew more than I did, but not enough to be comfortable advising on this kind of... view reply
  • Lee replied on the discussion topic I don't remember the file which manages the registration
    @ TSFI: Why didn't you check the dates of the files on the server using your FTP program or CPANEL file manager? The the files you changed will have different dates to the ones you didn't change. If you uploaded all files at the same time, check... view reply

    TSFI: I helped you. I gave you the answer, but you chose to ignore it! Those teens aren't going to write their real name for the the display name on a dating site. Is TSFI your real name? Go back to your other post and see what the solution was. view reply
