OK, I am not new to web development and have successfully installed many cms web applications, drupal, php nuke, phpbb, wordpress, to name a few.

I thought I would give raven nuke a try as I really like some of the features listed. Well, I am having a heck of a time. I have read and followed every single set of instructions i can find, and even re-downloaded the package several times thinking it could be file corruption. I have had no luck at all.

I configure the SQL instance, and configure the config.php file to reflect those settings. (just as I have done for many applications in the past).

Every time I try to access any of the installation scripts, I always get a 500 Internal Server error.

I am on php 5.2, MySQL, and a Linux box. I am installing Raven 2.51.

I have a sinking feeling that it is either something that is not compatible, or something really basic that I am overlooking.

Can anyone assist me with this problem?

Thanks in advance for anyone that takes time to answer me. I am at a loss here and frankly, my internet searches, although they find articles, have not found a solution to the problem.

Thanks,

Rename the .htaccess file. Are you using short links?

Did you verify the versions of PHP and MySQL are compatible? Which versions are you using?

Sorry...saw the PHP version 5.2 after posting. Try renaming the htaccess file to see if the 500 error goes away. If so, we can focus on the htaccess file.

like I said in the original post php ver is 5.2

MySQL version is 5.0

This is being installed in a sub-directory within the root of the server. I am using direct links, no domains yet.

I will try renaming the .htaccess file. I have removed everything from the folder again and was planning to start completely over. I will re-upload, edit the config.php, rename .htaccess, then post my results.

Thanks for the input.

You are awesome. Stupid htaccess file was the culprit. I will continue with the installation and post my final result.

thanks for your help.

Did you modify the htaccess file? You comment out every line, then uncomment by section until you find the culprit. Usually, the server configuration (usually php.ini, but sometimes Apache) causes issues with htaccess, so it would be helpful to know what specifically is causing the issue.

Hi kwiqness

Stupid htaccess file


.htaccess is a file to protect your domain and u can do lots of things.

You just needed to open .htaccess with a decent editor and read there.

# we use this symbol to comment the code out and u can see in these examples how it works. U just need to comment it one by one and press F5 to reload again until u get the installation warning. It is very simple. U don't need to upload all the files every time u get an error at least u have a corrupt file.

Code:
# 'Options +FollowSymLinks' is required for use of mod_rewrite.

# Can be commented out if causes errors, see notes above.
#Options +FollowSymLinks

# 'Options +Includes' is required for use of Server Side Includes (SSI), such as custom error pages (like 403.shtml).
# Can be commented out if causes errors, see notes above.
#Options +Includes

# 'Options -Indexes' is used for controlling directory listings if there is not an index file in a directory (and said directory is readable by the web server).
# A directory index will be automatically generated and this can prove to be a dangerous security issue.
# To disable this feature, use: 'Options -Indexes'
# To enable this feature (not advised), use: 'Options +Indexes'
# Can be commented out if causes errors, see notes above.
#Options -Indexes


Keep in touch how everything goes with your Ravennuke installation. Wink

Well to start I just changed the name of the file and it allowed my installation to succeed.

I will rename it back to its original name, and begin trouble shooting the entries as you suggested.

I'll post my results when I figure out the problem.

Thanks for the help.

OK, it seems to be this line in the htaccess file. I have commented out the problem line for now.

"Options +Includes"

Any suggestions on what to do now? What functionality does that provide, and is it something I need?


I also have some other questions about panel usage, and privaleged user setup once I get this issue resolved.

Thanks again for the help, looking forward to the reponses.

Are there any good documents out there that address permissions and forum access? I have created a group, but it doesn't show up in my list of group permissions.

I still just have the canned options (ALL, REG, MOD, etc..)

I see the custom group that I created when I go to Group Management in the forums module, but I have no way to assign access to a thread to that group.

I'm used to user classes that you can either allow or deny access to threads in your forums, and this doesn't seem to be setup that way at all.

The wiki doesn't go into detail on the permissions piece either.

Any documentation you could point me to in order to clarify how permissions work on Raven?

Thanks again in advance.

Is your PHP is compiled as CGI? Then .htaccess should be 644 and the rest of the files u shoudn't change it. they are 775. Do not change it to 777 otherwise u open door for unknown visitors.

Your htaccess file worked fine.

I am working on confuguring Nuke Sentinal right now. Will post back when that is complete.

I stand corrected. I got the 500 Internal Server error again when accessing the admin.php file to configure nuke sentinal.

I will revert back to my working htacces file and get nuke sentinal configured then report back.

Comment out this part

After this u need to setup properly nukesentinel and uncomment this code above with the right path out. Please read wiki.

That worked.


Will post back once Nuke Sentinel is configured properly. Thanks for the help.

Ok, now I am having trouble with the NS configuration. It is smooth sailing until I get to the point where I copy and past the CGIAuthSetup code into my htaccess. Then I get error 500 again.

I have followed the wiki word for word, twice now and I always get stuck at that point. If I comment out the 'start of NukeSentinel' section everything works fine. With that in the htaccess, i have no access to the administration panel.
