Comment #6

What is your server you are using, Host server that is. And secondly what version of PHPMyAdmin are you using? Also make sure you have your permissions set correctly on the install/index.php page.

Hi Toni,.

I notice you are 'bumping' this thread up sometimes with 'smilies'; you might want to read the forum rules:.



Comment #13

OK~ Sorry~.

But I want to quick to solve this problem!.

Help me OK?!.


Comment #14

Hi Toni,.

Have you read this -.


To ensure that all your paths are defined correctly. It simply sounds like a path problem, because you do have the SQL file in the 'install' path, yet the installation must be looking somewhere else, because it gives the error msg..


.. especially the 'Step 4' part..

I copy the "Install" folder to ./.

It is sucessfully to install..

But in next page, it show:.

Warning: fopen("/var/www/html\includes/configure.php", "w") - 沒有此一檔案或目錄 in /var/www/html/catalog/install/templates/pages/install_7.php on line 209.

Comment #16


Someone had a similar problem, see:.



Comment #17


But I also don't know how to fix it... =.=!..

Comment #18

You can try chmod the two configure.php files 777 all rights to all things or manually configure the two files or delete the two files admin/includes/configure.php and catalog/includes/configure.php..

Comment #19

Hi Toni,.

I found lots of posts with the same error messages, try this:.


But maybe first, if you can tell me what a phpinfo() tells you what DOCUMENT_ROOT value is please..


Comment #20


Okay, so going by what your other posts have stated:.

'catalog' = /var/www/html/catalog/.

'install' = /var/www/html/catalog/install/.

To do the install, you would simply need to use:.


In your browser..

Can you please post your.


, but remove the db name, username and password of course..

Also, you could try what Steve suggested:.

Try Steve's suggestions in the order above..

1. cmod the 2 configure.pph files to 777, then try the install again.

2. Manually edit the 2 configure.php files to ensure the paths are correct, then try the install again..

3. Delete both the configure.php files, and try the install again. I think why Steve has suggested this step, is because , if you tick one of the check boxes in the install, both the configure.php files are 'rebuilt' for you..


Comment #21

But now I can't start the Apache Server..

When I type:.

[root@linux /] # /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start.

Then it show:.

啟動 httpd:Syntax error on line 283 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:.

Error: Apache has not been designed to serve pages while.

Running as root. There are known race confidions that.

Will allow any local user to read any file on the system..

If you still desire to serve pages as root then.

Add -DBIG_SECURITY_HOLE to the CFLAGS env variable.

And then rebuild the server..

It is strongly suggested that you instead modify the User.

Directive in your httpd.conf file to list a non-root.


How can I solve ?!.


Comment #22


This sort of problem may not be (easily) answered in the osC forums. If you don't get assistance here for any Apache problems, try a good webmasters iPage site like "Sitepoint", the Apache forums are.




Comment #23

OH~ but this forum said I have no permission to post question...

Comment #24


Just register as a new user, I have found Sitepoint very helpful in many areas. Basically, if other forums can't answer the question, I always get the solution at Sitepoint..
