While installing vanilla locally, i am getting this error :

Fatal error: Class 'CategoryModel' not found in E:\wamp\www\vanilla\applications\vanilla\settings\structure.php on line 60

Any recommendations?

    Is this happening with 2.0.17.8 also?

  • Yes, this is happening with 2.0.17.8 as well :|
  • By the way i am able to install 2.0.17.7, but it ends up showing this error "Could not find a 'index' view for the 'discussions' controller in the '' application."
  • @UnderDog I am unable to install 2.0.17.8 due to the error "Fatal error: Class 'CategoryModel' not found in E:\wamp\www\vanilla\applications\vanilla\settings\structure.php on line 60"
    2.0.17.7 installs but has this error "Could not find a 'index' view for the 'discussions' controller in the '' application."
  • 2.0.17.7 installs but has this error "Could not find a 'index' view for the 'discussions' controller in the '' application."
    That error is resolved in 2.0.17.8
    Now let's figure out why you get the CategoryModel error.
    Unfortunately, it looks like it's something in the configuration. I have a similar install (Xampplite, not Wamp) and I don't have the problem.

    Are you familiar with looking at apache configurations?
  • Umm no i am not familiar with looking at apache configurations sorry :|
  • @dtp56 are you familiar with looking at apache configurations?
    You are on linux, correct?
  • Hi UnderDog, I'm afraid I don't know the answers, sorry, am comfortable editing code if I know what to look for etc but don't know php

    Experiencing the same issue, worked fine locally via Apache and on a test Apache webserver, but on production via Nginx I get this error. I was using WAMP locally.

    Fatal error: Class 'CategoryModel' not found in /srv/www/(not important)/forums/applications/vanilla/settings/structure.php on line 60

    I can look through logs, but I don't know if my configs will match up with Apache.

    I have a temporary work around, I wouldnt reccomend anyone using this. But if you comment out

    if ($CategoryExists) {
    $CategoryModel = new CategoryModel();
    $CategoryModel->RebuildTree();
    unset($CategoryModel);
    }

    It will allow you to install it, and it should as far as i know run fine, but i havent tested this on a live forum, just on a localhost.
  • I have same issue.
  • I used your workaround deathdroid and it worked for me, I just uncommented it after I installed.
  • Ok, awesome. Im glad it worked for someone else as well.
  • Also worked for me. Thanks a lot!

    I made another database and it installation work liked a charm
  • Look in your cache folder at the .ini files. They probably have the wrong path.
  • Hi: I tried commenting out the lines, but I just keep getting sent back to the install page.
    To follow up on ShawnM's suggestion, what are the paths supposed to be in the cache/.ini files?
