    Does the database you are trying to select exist?
    Visual Basic, HTML, PHP, SQL, ASP, JavaScript, C++, Perl

    PHP 4.0.6
    MySQL 3.23.39
    Windows 2000

        are u sure that your hosting support php4 ?


        which version u used?

        are you sure that use nuke 5.0.1 final ?
        and u download it from tha main site

          Do u happen to run it on a Windows machine? I had this also on my home machine running Win2k.
          The problem is, that phpnuke doesn't write the quotes (" ") to not to be parsed with PHP. So the footer line may looks sth like this:

          footer1="<a href="linkname">text</a>....";
          It should, however, look like this:

          footer1="<a href=\"linknam\">text</a>...";
          So you either need to edit those lines manually with an editor and upload the config.php or insert the backslashes in the message boxes. You need to this everywhere where the quotes are used.
          I don't know where the error is since it works well on a linux server.
