If the database name is raven, what should I include in the remaining fields of the config.php file?

$dbhost = '';
$dbuname = '';
$dbpass = '';
$dbname = 'raven';
$prefix = 'nuke';

Once you have EAMPP installed....You have to go create a database....then create a user....and add a password to the user account.

Then you take that info and add it to the config.php file.

dbhost will be localhost.

If you are doing a local install you can typically use:
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbuname = 'root';
$dbpass = '';
$dbname = 'raven';
$prefix = 'nuke';

It all depends on what you did with your mysql username, but this is default.

When I create the database with phpmyadmin, in the menu
"Collation", is it correct to select "utf8_general_ci" ?

Keep in mind that my default language will be English and Italian.

I had to go though the whole process on mine. I guess it is how it is set up.

I am not able to find the files:

.htaccess Found - Not Writeable
.staccess Found - Not Writeable

For:

Magic Quotes GPC ON OFF
Output Buffering ON OFF

I think I need to change the php.ini

You will probably have to look under view and click show hidden files to be able to see the .htaccess and .staccess files. And yes you will need to look in the php.ini file for those settings and restart the server after you edit it.

The installation is successful, but when I completed the setup following:

PHP version in XAMPP is 5.3.1

When I will complete the site I'll have to install it into a server with PHP Version 5.2.17

Do you know if the compatibility is full ?

RavenNuke will work fine under 5.2.17.

Do you think I may have problems with XAMPP (5.3.1)?

I have used Xampp for a few years to test stuff on and have had very few issues with it. I have changed a few of the default settings in the php.ini to be like my live server. As far as exporting an Xampp database to a live server, the only issue I have had doing that is that by default, Xampp sets the database collation to utf8_general_ci instead of latin1_swedish_ci which has cause a few display issues with certain characters.

In Italian language there are the following characters: è é à ò ù ì....

When I created the database by XAMPP-phpmyadmin the menu Collation allows me to select latin1_swedish_ci

Please which Collation should I choose?

According to the Mysql website, latin1_swedish_ci should be fine for most West European languages including Italian.

Not with 2.5 you won't. And, even 2.4.x will work, you'll just have warnings (potentially) in your logs around deprecated functions.

I couldn't get it to install on XAMPP tried lots of tweaks and messing around for a whole day, in the end I gave up, it beat me !!

in the end I installed WAMP

WAMP is loads better you can run several versions of PHP and Apache at the same time, and I can safely report that RN2.5 installed fine on WAMP with no problems at all

I use WAMP. It works fine out of the box, but have had problems adding other versions of php, mysql, and apache. They install fine, but sometimes the server will not start.

So, this was using XAMPP on Windows? What were some of the issues you were encountering?

I kept getting the invalid IP error

I looked though all the relevant forums here for lots of fixes, I did manage to get v2.4 working on xampp with the same relevant fixes but just couldn't get v2.5 to play ball.

I ended up installing WAMP

I run 2 PHP versions (very easy to install .exe format downloads from WAMP)

PHP 5.2.9
PHP 5.3.8

To be able to run PHP 5.2.9 you have to install and use Apache 2.2.11

So i can now switch between PHP 5.2 + 5.3 very easily
