I know the user and pass is correct and the DB and hostname also. I can connect fine via mysql command line.
I am also getting with joomla:
Okay so I navigate to the installer folder and run installer.php which tosses this error:
I read on this post :
http://softmarket.ro/joomla-tips/im-get ... oomla.html
Installation Joomla 1.0.11 or 1.0.12 I was getting "Restricted access" after uploading all installation files to my hosting provider. after trying to set some other rights to the files, i had no success. finally i debugged a little the process and with a define( 'VALIDMOS', 1 ); placed in installation/index.php as the first php code line solved the problem i suppose with it it's not really secure, but you have to delete the installation folder anyway..
I did that and ran it again and now it comes up with this error:
PHP Notice: Use of undefined constant DS - assumed 'DS' in C:\Websites\Joomla\installation\installer\installer.php on line 20
PHP Warning: require_once(C:\Websites\Joomla\installation\installerDScontroller.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\Websites\Joomla\installation\installer\installer.php on line 20
PHP Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'C:\Websites\Joomla\installation\installerDScontroller.php' (include_path='.;C:\php5\pear') in C:\Websites\Joomla\installation\installer\installer.php on line 20
I basically did this:
define( 'VALIDMOS', 1 );
//defined('_JEXEC') or die('Restricted access'); <--- commented out this line..
If i don't then i get the restricted access issue.
It can't be this hard to install can it? I have installed DotNetNuke and a few other CMS type sites without problems.
Any help is appreciated.
MySql is setup on the default port etc. What could be the issue? I can connect to the MySql server fine with command line and with navicat. Thanks for your time.
