Drupal Installation Problem


This is my first ever installation of Drupal so please go gentle! I have installed it with my hosting company, TSOhost, and the following message appears when I log into Drupal.

Warning: Unterminated comment starting line 238 in /var/sites/u/ubereadoolische.com/public_html/drupal/sites/default/settings.php on line 238

Apart from that, the screen is white. Any ideas?


Well, the Warning seems clear enough to me.
As for the white screen, I imagine settings are a crucial part of Drupal being able to work, and since that file has a problem Drupal can not proceed any further.

Did you try fixing that file?

What file? How is it broken? All I have done is installed it.

I’m told that when I log in I should see a admin menu across the screen?

As indicated in the Warning message, the drupal/sites/default/settings.php file.

Unterminated comment starting line 238

If you didn’t edit that file, I imagine it is less likely to be a Drupal error but more likely to be a corrupt file.
eg. there was an interruption during FTP upload / installation and the file wasn’t written completely.

Try uploading that file again.

Thanks Buddy, that has fixed it.
