  • [Suite] vBulletin 4.2 Installation stuck at Connection successful Status: Installing, Step 2 of 7

    Trying to do a fresh installation of vBulletin 4.2 and it got stuck on Connection successful Status: Installing, Step 2 of 7. I checked the DB and the tables were created, waited for an hour, nothing happened. So, I refreshed the page and purged the tables and it is now stuck again, below is the detail log. I am new to vBulletin so not sure what the next step to fix it is.

    Install 4.2.0

    Looking at the error logs on the server I found this error
    Premature end of script headers: install.php

    Not sure how to fix that, any help would be great!

    When you refresh the install page you get the same error?

      Download the complete package again from the members area, and upload in ASCII format, making sure that you overwrite the existing files.
      Then try running the upgrade again.

        Yeah I see multiple same errors in the error log, for each time I tried re-install.

            Here are the new errors after performing the download from members area and re-upload:

              The 'Premature end of script headers' error means that the script stopped for whatever reason before it returned any output to the web server.

              Some information:

              http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=24447
              http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/misc/FAQ-F.html

              Ask your host what http errors redirect to internal_error.html.

                I checked out those links before you posted them I just opened a support ticket with Dreamhost, waiting on their reply.

                  Also check for Byte Order Marks (BOM).

                  You can do this in a good text editor. For example, on Windows you can use notepadd++.

                  Open up config.php in Notepad++
                  Then view it with invisible characters turned on:
                  View (menu) -> Show Symbols -> Show All Characters.
                  Anything in front of the <?php needs to be deleted. The < should be the first character in the file.

                    Checked out this link http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Creating_custom_error_pages looks like a 500 error. Now, need to find out what in the installation is causing that error. Any ideas?

                    I edited the config file on the server using nano editor, so that shouldn't be a problem.

                    - - - Updated - - -

                    So I went ahead and performed the config.php steps anyway and still no change, same error.

                    - - - Updated - - -

                    Checked for a possible .htaccess file in root, no .htaccess files there. Do I need to run chmod 777 on any folder?

                    - - - Updated - - -

                    Just for sanity check I uploaded the zip file and unzipped it on the server to make sure it wasn't a missing file issue, in case the upload didn't happen successfully. Still no luck, running out of ideas.

                      I had the same issue. It was a timeout issue... the web server was configured to only give 40 seconds for PHP scripts to run, and the vBulletin installer needed more than that. I changed the mod_fcgi timeout for my site to 7200 seconds and that solved the problem.
