setting up

edited February 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I guess I'm having problems getting this to be viewable in my web-browser, I am setting this up on a headless server with no gui, but I can get it to be viewable using apache 1.3x. I'm on a Debian Stable using and Unstable version of MySQL 5.0.18. Could someone please advise on what to do, and explain why this information is not in the directions.

    We're going to need more information than that in order to help you. What version of Vanilla are you trying to set up? What file are you having problems with? If you are getting any errors, what are they?

    I am using VAnilla 0.9.6.2, I just can't view ANY files in the browser, and I am getting no errrors. As far as I know.

    If you're on 9.2.6 you needn't have run the database.sql file. If you browse to installer.php it should run you through a script to setup your forum for you.

    really? I guess I misread the directions. I will try that now.

    Ok, i found out that I had ipchains installed, but i uninstalled that when i setup the system. Removed that, but i still can't view the installer.php, i am trying to connect to http://ip.ip.ip.ip/vanilla/installer.php what could i be doing wrong?
  • Options
    I'm not sure what ipchains is or what it has to do with this? I'm assuming ofcourse that you have other php scripts running successfully on your server and that any necessary configuration (not a great deal but php atleast needs to be executable) is applied to the vanilla directory?
    Have you set up all your permissions properly?
  • Options
    Yes, ipchains is a software firewall on linux. the vanilla dir under /var/www is set to 777. the installer file is set to 777 currently. anything else?
  • Options
    Oh yeah sorry. So do you have any other php scripts running?
  • Options
    None, also apache is asking me to save the installer.php file.
  • Options
    Um. Definately sounds like a server issue.
  • Options
    Ok. Any reccomendations? i'm not sure what else to do from here.
  • Options
    Who's your host? I'd suggest you recommend some sort of re-config.
  • Options
    I'm hosting this myself....
  • Options
    Uh..huh. Recompile apache? Did you compile it yourself or apt-get it?
  • Options
    apt-get :-D
  • Options
    sudo apt-get update *
