Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..
Manually creating & populating the database got me past that.....
Now it just stops with only New Installation & osCommerce Configuration on the screen....no errors.....haven't found anything in any logs either......
I found out that on Redhat 8.0 php-mysql module is NOT is not installed by default..
I found the correct module at RPMFind.net.
(it may be the 8.0.5 version, depending on which version of PHP you have installed).
It worked like a charm for me. Hope it helps..
All of red hat php and mysql are not installed by default, thus you must be doing this locally on your own system..
Perfavore tell me as you have resolved the problem and we hold to you informs the first one to you that has the solution communicates it..
I have the same problem on my Mandrake 10.1 Community, can you tell us where you've seen the wrong mysql_connect() calls ? Is there any log ? I didn't find any......
That"s completely crazy, but I found a solution..
With Firefox, installation was freezing, with Konqueror is worked !!.
Anyway it worked.
I am having this same exact problem with mandrake 10.0 it locks up exactly like the use first user says it does. This is on a local install. PHP and MySQL installed on a more than capable system. I have tried to do this remotely and locally and get the same results..
Anyone have any clues as to what might be causign this problem?.
I did not have the pp_mysql.dll installed. Once I installed it, it still did not work so I had to add that extension to the php.ini file. Then REBOOT the server. Once I did that it worked like it should..
Hope this helps with some other users...
I assume you meant "php_mysql.dll"?.
I do have this dll, but am still having this problem. Anyone have any other ideas?.
Make sure the mysql extentions are working by checking your php.info. (or whatever filename you use to see your php info) If theyre not listed (search for mysql) - solve this by copying the libmysql.dll to windows\system32..
That got me a bit further down the road, installation now proceeds....
YEP. I HAD THIS VERY SAME ISSUE, WHERE THE DATABASE WOULD JUST SIT THERE TRYING TO ESTABLISH CONNECTION, WITH NO GO..
AFTER PULLING OUT SOME HAIR, I DECIDED TO TRY IT WITH INTERNET EXPLORER INSTEAD OF FIREFOX, WORKED IMMEDIATLEY. THX.
Lol just realized I posted on something like two years old..
