I don't see why that wouldn't work.


Please try running tiki.sql manually and then tiki_1.8to1.9.sql

mysql -u dbuser -p tikidb < db/tiki.sql
mysql -f -u dbuser -p tikidb < db/tiki_1.8to1.9.sql

Ok, I 'successfully' ran the scripts. The 1.8to1.9 script gave errors, but I assume by the -f that this result is expected.

That still doesn't solve my problem. It appears now that I've done some brute force debugging with echo statements that the error lies in adodb.inc.php.

When it's trying to get the connection to the db, it just stops. No error returned, no echo statements afterward executed.

in ADOConnection.Connect() ->

Image
if ($rez=$this->_connect($this->host, $this->user, $this->password, $thi
s->database))  return true;


I've never really coded in PHP before, though, so I have no idea where to go from there.

Hi,

I'm having exactly the same symptoms, but on a different set of versions:
Debian Woody (3.0)
Apache 1.3.26
Mysql 3.23.49
PHP 4.1.2
Tiki 1.9.0

I've increased the php memory limit in php.ini to 32M, played with file permissions, added the php error output code to tiki-install.php and the two Smart*class.php files also. I even tried the manual database creation suggestion above (and got errors as telescan did above).

I also tried running setup.sh with some virtual host info with no change in behavior (my host is using multiple IP addresses for virtual hosts, so I don't think this should be necessary, but I tried it anyway).

So far the tiki-install.php script always behaves the same. On first access it asks for the database name,user,password, and then returns a blank page (no errors - ever). Re-nagivating to the install gives a file not found error, a second reload gives the original page asking for the database info again, and this loops and loops. I also tried entering the db info for the virtual hosts, but that behaves identically.

Essentially nothing I've done affects the behavior of the system frown

Any help welcome.
