View Full Version : never get to step 2 installation

06-15-2005, 11:33 PM

With the aut. install i never get to the step2 of the installation...
i click but the page only seems to refresh.
When i do a manual in configure i get it running but without all the theme stuff, only plain text catalog.

Login into the admin then is well somehow impossible for i get redirected
to a unknown page that says: http://localhost/osmax/catalog/http://localhost.... or something alike.

Guess it is phpversion problem?
Locaally i run the Apache2triad package with
Apache/2.0.53 (Win32) PHP/5.0.4 - mysql4.1

If i find some spare time i wil try and do all manually and see if i can get it worked out.
For the admin problem might be an old problem with == / = somehwere in a admin/include/ upload.php class if i am not wrong here.

Check your error logs. Most likely it is php or mysql that is causing the issue.

I have successfully tested osCMax on apache 2.0.52, php 5.03, mysql 4.0.23

[Thu Jun 16 17:34:13 2005] [warn] [client] mod_include: Options +Includes (or IncludesNoExec) wasn't set, INCLUDES filter removed, referer: http://localhost/

if i am not wrong that is the error when i hit the install button.

any idea? a php ini thing or?

put this in your sites main .htaccess file:

Options +All

and see if it works. Most likely your problem is due to restrictive apache rights (not a bad thing actually!)

i tried that one but same result unfortunately...
even removed the server roots htaccess and the htaccess in catalog
but it does not help.
Okay the htaccess in catalog has the apache rewrite rules so had nothing to do with it.

06-16-2005, 09:53 AM
This looks like a server setup issue. Perhaps apache is not allowing htaccess overrides in httpd.conf?

well, that part is commented out in apache2triad i see.
setting it "errors" the server when i try to restart or i might me trying the wrong directives or command.

# AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files.
# It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
# Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
#AllowOverride None

Tried with AllowOverride None
and AllowOverrride ALL
both same problem

i am not really into apache2 / apache2triad unfortunately to just see what might be a solution here. sorry.

06-16-2005, 11:05 AM
I am running it on apache2triad, but not the most recent version. Maybe downgrade to the previous version and you will have success?

06-16-2005, 11:14 AM
right :)
what version are you running?


06-16-2005, 11:21 AM
Sorry about not listing it...

Apache2Triad 1.5.1

06-17-2005, 07:36 AM
clicking the continue button on the 'install.php?step=2' page just seems to refresh.

Setup is as follows:
osCMax v2.0
PHP Version 5.0.4
MySQL 4.1.7
IIS 6.0
Windows NT 5.2 build 3790

Any help is greatly appriciated :oops:

Sorry, cant help much with IIS. Any IIS experts out there???

06-17-2005, 11:15 AM
How about the MySQl and PHP verions I'm using... do you think they would cause something like this?

06-17-2005, 11:47 AM
I think it is the combo of those versions w/IIS/windows.

I have heard others running running linux/apache with those php/mysql versions with no issues at all.

for blioux,
If you've any Internet related security software (firewall etc.), disable it and try the installation again.

I ran into this problem as well. For me, it was a problem with my php5 configuration.

The culprit was a php5 configuration option called "register_long_arrays" which was turned off in my php.ini file. I changed the line:

"register_long_arrays = off"


"register_long_arrays = on"

I think that "off" may be the default option, but I may have set it that way when I installed php5 - I don't remember right now.

Either way, this fixed the issue for me. I hope that it helps you :o)

It's because of PHP 5. Try installing PHP 4.3.x and see if that solves your problem.

It's because of PHP 5. Try installing PHP 4.3.x and see if that solves your problem. I have run into this problem before

Yes, that would fix the problem as well. However if you want to use php5, altering the php.ini file as I have noted above fixes the issue.

Yea...uninstall IIS and install Apache.....

Use EasyPHP or as Mike said use Apache2triad!

Thats funny, I thought my posts weren't getting posted, but it turns out that they were just on the second page. Sorry for sounding repetitive.
