Re: Database problem
I also have FatCow. At first I thought it was the host. MySQL Database looked like it didn't work. There was no error. At the very first pass it would come back and ask to input info again.
Not a good one but it worked.
Downlaod 126.96.36.199 (http://sourceforge.net/projects/xoops/files/
) which is a Stable Release
Extract htdocs from 188.8.131.52 - DON'T INSTALL yet
Extract files/folders specified for upgrade
Upload htdocs content to the XOOPS root folder
Go to the website and you will be promoted to install Xoops
Complete the set up and click to view your site. No need to login.
On the address bar, at the end after /
Log in if prompted and follow instructions displayed.
Delete install and upgrade folders, and set read only permissions for mainfile
Log in to the administration section of your XOOPS website and go to modules
Update the System module.
That worked for me.
