Error on step 4 of 5 "No DB LAYER found!"

Post by evans17 » Tue May 10, 2005 11:52 am

I get to all steps but when I get here I get this error "No DB LAYER found!"\

Install Info
Select Language :: English
Database type :: mysqli
phpBB version :: 2.0.14
EasyMOD version :: 0.1.13
EM status :: New Install

It picks up that I am using mysqli extensions
I have mysql 4.1 installed along with php5
The board works fine, but where do I setup the account info for it to access the database?

Ok I got it now, Wow what a mess to install

First was mysqli does not have a case selection in easymod_install.php

I changed mysql4 to mysqli and got past this step now

Then I did the

easymod_install.php, Line 982 wrote:

fix

Now she installed and working. I wonder if anyone else noticed this, or am I the only one using the mysqli extenstins.

You are absolutely right! This bug should be fixed in the next version of EasyMOD.

Well, hey, what do you know. You weren't absolutely right. It turns out that MySQLi support was written specifically for the phpBB-PHP5 package, which is separate and independent from phpBB.

Since that is the case, this may or may not be fixed in the next version of EasyMOD.

It will... in fact, I believe it already does. Oh, and it's 3.0 now. ;)
