I am attempting to install RavenNuke v2.20.0 but it appears I have not been able to get much beyond reading the Docs, and a few other first steps. I've created a database, user and pswd and granted full access to same. I also changed the config.php file to reflect the info from the database. As an aside I note the config.php file in my unzipped version of RavenNuke_v2.20.0 shows e.g., SQL Database Hostname and NOT SQL "localhost"; So here I'm not sure if the quotes, etc are really necessary or ??? On completion of the u/l to my Server ( in folder public_html) of the items in the html folder, l pointer Firefox to the URL. With my best efforts I cannot get beyond these 2 Error messages;

>There seems to be a problem connecting to the MySQL server. MySQL is Reporting Access denied for user 'rnv220'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

SO, I then added the latter part of the route as noted below to the Address bar and then I get the second error msg / problem (cf. below). I attempted to work around this by accommodating that message by adding the User 'rnv220' with the pswd YES, but that just gives me a repeat of the results I've been getting. From my reading of the docs it would appear the User 'rnv220' would be something in an earlier 'fill in the Form' step provided to assist with installation. BTW I also changed the permission on the ultramode.txt, sample.htaccess and sample.staccess fm 644 to 777. This was suggested in the Doc's.

Albeit, Ravennuke and I are at loggerheads on this and without some assistance I'm not sure I can make any further progress. Except for my role as a weekend admin on a PHPNuke site ( Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! which I did not install), where I have some hands-on experience with cPanel and its many features such as Files, Mail, Logs, Security, Databases, Software, I'm a blank slate with respect to scripts, etc. Appreciate ANY and ALL help those of you with the depth and span of knowledge of RavenNuke can offer. In advance, thank you.

>There seems to be a problem with the System Configuration Table - it's missing. If you are the System Administrator and installing this for the first time, did you remember to run the INSTALLATION/installSQL.php file?

2nd Error Msg.
MySQL Database Connectivity Test Results config.php file found! I was unable to reach your MySQL server using the MySQL connection settings in your nuke config.php file. The exact error that MySQL reported is:
MySQL Error # 2 = Access denied for user 'rnv220'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

It looks like the config.php file is not setup correctly.

You need to fill in the details you setup for your database and user. See below:

$dbhost = 'localhost'; If you are using cPanel this can usually stay as localhost.
$dbuname = 'username'; Change this to the username you created for your database
$dbpass = 'password'; Enter the password you created for the database
$dbname = 'databasename'; Enter your database name

The once you have done this go to INSTALLATION/installSQL.php

Unless I've missed something crucial here I've already completed that aspect of the Installation prep. Here's what one my Server in the config.php file;
// Database & System Config
//
// dbhost: SQL "localhost";
// dbuname: SQL "namaste";
// dbpass: SQL "mypassword";
// dbname: SQL "gnjtbjty_rnuke";
// $prefix: Your Database table's prefix
// $user_prefix: Your Users' Database table's prefix (To share it)
// $dbtype: Your Database Server type. Supported servers are:
// MySQL, mysql4, postgres, mssql, oracle, msaccess,
// db2 and mssql-odbc
// Be sure to write it exactly as above, case SeNsItIvE!

AND when I attempt the INSTALLATION/installSQL.php I'm met with the same message/impasse.

I might add here that there is one other piece of info that might assist someone in breaking this impasse I face and that is the error I now get on adding the "..did you remember to run the INSTALLATION/installSQL.php," is a 'Page Not Found 404 ". My Error log notes there is no such file, "[Sun Mar 9 15:21:08 2008] [error] [client 72.139.83.4] File does not exist: /home/gnjtbjty/public_html/INSTALLATION/installSQL.php." It would seem I cannot create the database because permission does not exist for the rnv220 at my localhost. Also PHPAdmin reveals there are no tables in the database! How to create them given the impasse I face is my quandary.

namaste, that stuff you just posted is "commented out". You need to remove the leading // characters.

Actually scroll down a bit probably to the uncommented out stuff.

Ok I am having the same issues here. Got the database issue fixed. Now get this error when I go to the site.
MySQL Error



There seems to be a problem with the System Configuration Table - it's missing.
If you are the System Administrator and installing this for the first time, did you remember to run the INSTALLATION/installSQL.php file?



If you are not the System Administrator, please report this to the Administrator and/or Web Master ASAP.

We will be back as soon as possible.

and when I try to go to the installation link it gives me this

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /INSTALLATION/installSQL.php on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Is there a step by step installation manaul?

It also sounds like it could be a file permission issue. IF you are installing this on a local linux machine, for example, make sure your directories are 755 and files are 644. The HowToInstall manual will tell you which files and directories to give additional permissions to.

hey the problem i had had was not realizing that, possibly due to being on a virtual server, my SQL username was prefixed by the hosting username so the username i had to put in the config file was hostuser_SQLuser. and i think the same with the database. this may helo some people in the future.

Looking at your setup If your databasename is gnjtbjty_rnuke
Then you user name should be gnjtbjty_namaste

Just a thought

Just an FYI people. This thread is almost a year old.
