View Full Version : installation
07-24-2006, 02:57 PM
I purchased the full version and have the directory installed at http://internet-marketing-seo-optimization.com/.
I can't access the server directly as it is being hosted at dot5hosting.com, so their tech support is running the installation.
After they installed it there are no categories shown. Also, when I run the phpMyAdmin option for setting up the database the following error occurs:
Access denied for user: 'interne1@localhost' to database 'interne1_esyndicat'
I know it seems obvious, but is the reason I don't have categories due to the database not being set up properly?
Any other help is appreciated.

First I think it's strange to have a hosting provider where you can't install this script. The requirements are for a basic hosting plan as I have a look at the providers website I don't think that any limit to the user's right is the problem,
I think if you follow the installation guide there won't be a problem...
But first ask for the ftp and mysql username / password and remove the old installation.

It looks like your configurations are incorrect as well - if I click on a category I get a standard vDeck error 404 page.
You need to contact tech support. Are you with iPowerWeb?

No, I'm with dot5hosting.com. Do you know what I need to tell them to correct? They have been good about making updates so far. This looks like a permissions issue to me. What do you think?
Thanks for the help.
#1. You have problem with .htaccess file - it is missing or you may need to add line: "RewriteBase / " right after "RewriteEngine on" line
#2. Login to your admin panel and enable news functionality (click on the news link and you will see what I am talking about)

You can check the permissions with any FTP program, Michael.
WWM also has a point,though - on some servers you may need anotehr line in addition to what he mentions - try this before the "RewriteRule" and any "RewriteCond" statements:

Thanks WTM and djbaxter.
There was an .htaccess file but it was completely blank. I added all of the lines you suggested (3 in all) and enabled the news functionality but none of this made a difference. I first tried the 2 lines WTM suggested to no avail then added the last line with the same results.
The permissions associated with the 2 folders and 2 files in the installation manual are:
drwxrwxrwx 2 3683 interne1 512 Jul 24 09:54 .
drwxrwxrwx 2 3683 interne1 512 Jul 25 05:44 .
-rwxrwxrwx 1 3683 interne1 2363 Jul 25 05:44 config.inc.php
-rwxrwxrwx 1 3683 interne1 11036 Jul 22 14:56 style.css
So that looks right.
Still, no folders are created for the subdirectories and the 404 error prevails.
Still looking for solutions.
Thanks for your help guys...

Can you post the contents of your .htaccess file, please?
when you downloaded the script and extracted it to your local computer do you see .htaccess file in the main folder?

I retrieved the original .htaccess file, placed it as is into the root folder and it worked! Thanks for the help. I'll post it's contents as I have commented out the lines you suggested above. Should I add them now?
Thanks again for your help.

copy new .htaccess file from upgrade patch and upload it to your root - there were few changes.
If it's working - leave it as is.
If not - first try to add RewriteBase line
