I couldn't find any solutions to the problems I encountered. I had a rough start after installing. The script would run into an issue with creating the database. I looked through the scripts and discovered the update files and input them through the servers mysql.
I am trying to run the install script and after entering the details, the script seems to stall. I get a the news13 logo and backgrounds but nothing else after selecting test connection. Any idea what's cooking? I'm thinking I should start over on the installation.
I turned off globals and messed with the .ini file from stuff I found online. Now I'm getting a response but not a successful one:
Warning: require_once(/hermes/bosweb/web012/b123/ipw.articleboard/public_html/news//language/.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /hermes/bosweb/web012/b123/ipw.articleboard/public_html/news/install/index.php on line 337
Looks like I'm getting an extra forward slash from news to language...
I got this with your help. For some reason the files I downloaded had the file name "lang" rather than "language". I renamed the file folder in my ftp program and it's a grand slam! Everything is going smoothly now!!!
On a good note, it seems to have installed. However, the Categories are empty. I got the test post from you saying it was installed and was able to comment. I'm in the admin panel as well. Is something missing from the undefined loop?
