Won't Install

I get this error when I try to install (Don't want to post it here because it's big)

Anyone know how to fix it?


  • Options
    I think there are 3 problems:
    • It cannot find the masterview, which is really strange with a default install
    • You must have the MySQL driver for PDO enabled in order for Vanilla to connect to your database.
    • Some of your folders do not have the correct permissions.

      Using your ftp client, or via command line, make sure that the following permissions are set for your vanilla installation:

      chmod -R 777 /some/path/to/htdocs/conf
      chmod -R 777 /some/path/to/htdocs/uploads
      chmod -R 777 /some/path/to/htdocs/cache
    Try to check if these paths exist:
    0 => '/some/path/to/htdocs/themes/default/dashboard/views/setup.master*',
    1 => '/some/path/to/htdocs/themes/default/views/setup.master*',
    2 => '/some/path/to/htdocs/applications/dashboard/views/setup.master*',
    3 => '/some/path/to/htdocs/applications/dashboard/views/setup.master*',

    and after that try to see if the PDO MySQL driver is installed. I think that's where the problem started and it all went downhill from there :-)
