  • Fresh installation problems and i need help

    Hi there,
    i was not used VB5 long time and now decide to use it again, anyway its perfect engine


    So i uploaded engine to clean webhost and accessed it via url. Instead of installation wizard i get blank page. I said OK to my self and uploaded it again. After that i renamed config.php.bkp to config.php and accessed it again;
    I get almost blank page with such text:
    Configuration: includes/config.php does not exist. For a new install click here

    I push the button ;-) and get a window where wizard ask me about license, i've put it right in, its created config file and i did install it.
    I get strange thing after that - when i press button "Delete makeconfig.php and start install" - i get an error like some link or something like that was not working: cannot open http://www.forum...../install/install.php - but that file was accesses by me at ../core/install/install.php address ok.
    There were no errors during installation, but, when it finished i push Admin panel button.

    I get directory index instead of admin panel login.
    When i try to open main page - i also getting broken page - its not load complitly.

    I hosted at VPS its running under Ubuntu 14 with Apache2 and nginx on board. Maybe something wrong with apche2+nginx chain...
    Thats why i need your help.


    I also attached 2 screenshots...

    There are TWO config files. One just needs renaming, the other needs renaming and editing.

    You need to rename this file:

    config.php.bkp

    To:

    config.php

    Do nothing else with that file.

    Then you need to rename this file:

    /core/includes/config.php.new

    To:

    /core/includes/config.php

    Then you need to complete the following fields:

    $config['Database']['dbname'] = 'forum';
    Change forum to whatever your database name is.

    $config['Database']['technicalemail'] = '[email protected]';
    Change the email address to your own.

    $config['MasterServer']['username'] = 'root';
    Change root to the database username

    $config['MasterServer']['password'] = '';
    Enter the database password inside the '' marks.

    All other fields should be left as default, unless your database is on a separate server, in which case this will need changing:

    $config['MasterServer']['servername'] = 'localhost';

    Then run yourdomain.com/core/install/install.php

        I also think that there can be something with my VPS, because first time i've tryed to put forum to http://www.fiber-services.ru/forum/ but it open's me http://www.fiber-services.ru/ instead of /forum/ directory. Maybe there is any redirect on nginx.... i have no any idea how to manage that - i'm not super user in linux

          I was trying to made clean installation as you described and the end result is same: at top of broken index page i can see some content of main site - my compass theme for wordpress.... have no idea why.... - it can be found at http://fiber-services.ru/forum/

            Well, i'm founded and fixed my issues.
            First was that curl was not installed.
            Second - i forget to rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess


            Now everything works fine
