Hey guys

 

Having a little trouble installing phpbb on my local server (never had trouble when using a hosting company). Here's the full rundown:

 

-Running Abyss Server, site works just fine

 

-FTP works just fine and is running on Filezilla server

 

-Unzipped phpbb to a folder named "forum" so it was accessible through http (ie: site.com/forum)

 

-granted r/w access for config.php from FTP client

 

-Installed PHP 4.4.1 and selected for type of server: None (or other server)

 

-Installed MySQL 5.0

 

-Tried accessing http://site.com/forum/install/install.php

 

 

Below is the result of trying to access www.site.com/forum/install/install.php

 

Someone please help as this forum needs to be up by Thursday, thanks :)

Hey d3, thanks for the reply. I tried setting it to use "IIS 4 and up" and still get the same problem. Could you help guide me on configuring PHP for Abyss web server? I'd really appreciate it :P

psychotic I'll check when I get home :P

 

Ok so I figured out the php issue and now I can get to the install screen (install.php) the problem I'm having now is about setting up a database. I'm using MySQL 5.0.15 but only see an option for MySQL 3.X and 4.X

 

It also says the database I need to install to must already exist. I went to the MySQL command line and did "CREATE DATABASE kurosen" and it accepted.

 

Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' (using password: NO) in E:\http\forum\db\mysql4.php on line 48

 

Warning: mysql_error(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in E:\http\forum\db\mysql4.php on line 330

 

Warning: mysql_errno(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in E:\http\forum\db\mysql4.php on line 331

phpBB : Critical Error

 

I'm guessing I have to make some kind of link between PHP and MySQL but don't know how. I also haven't figured out what to do regarding CHMOD (getting a "500 syntax error" from my Filezilla FTP server when attempting) and what needs to be set. Please guys I would be grateful for any and all help. Thanks :) :cries inside:
