Problem with instalation

Post by Werr » Tue Feb 10, 2009 2:04 pm

What should I do? I am not sure either whats wrong or what should I do to fix it... Here is a screen shot of the requirements. I would appreciate any help on what to do :)

The files and directories is all "found, writable"

Try placing the following in an .htaccess file in the domain root:

Code: Select all

php_value mbstring.http_input pass
php_value mbstring.http_output pass
If that does not work, you need to contact your host to change the setting.

When i put these lines in the .htaccess file and then go to the domain i get the 500 internal error. And when i delete it, it's all OK. So I must contact the host right?

phpBB3 will run fine with those settings, the problem is that the install script won't continue automatically so you can use the following url to start the install after the checks:

yourdomain.com/phpBB3/install/index.php?mode=install&sub=database&language=en

obviously replace yourdomain.com with the actual domain, and change the phpBB3 folder to whatever you used as the location.

I've done several upgrades to version 3 for people who had this same issue. :)
