problem check list
I was just helping this guy, with his XOOPS install, and I reckon that if on the front page of this site, we had a BIG RED LINK to a form with certain questions, as follow:
Do you have PHP? Version.
Do you have SQL? Version.
Do you have a DB, with correct name and pass.
Register Globals, on/off?
Can you see install.php?
Can you see index.php?
Can you loging?
All this form would do, is produce a formatted text page that the person could paste into a messanger software, or their first forum post. No Db at all.
And if you were really clever, you could make it decision tree like, ie, if you cannot see install, it would not bother asking about index.php
