I tried a couple of things but nothing successful.

I finish the XOOPS instalation and after the page confirming the Modules instalation i was sent to a blank page whit this error on it :

Fatal error: Call to a member function getVar() on a non-object in /home/nvi/public_html/xoops/html/class/theme.php on line 493

I have the same thing on TWO servers now, installation reported that it was successful, but the first GET of the index page produces:

Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /var/www/mydomain.com/htdocs/xoops/class/theme.php on line 493
Notice [PHP]: Only variables should be assigned by reference in file include/common.php line 223
Notice [PHP]: Only variables should be assigned by reference in file kernel/object.php line 819

Software versions are:
PHP 4.4.0
MYSQL 4.1.14
APACHE 2.0.54
XOOPS 2.2.3


I would be glad of some advice at this point...

thnx

the php notices, you can ignore as you are using php 4.4 (this question is posted many times on the forum if you search)

the fatal error isn't what i've come across before..

what XOOPS version are you using?? as line 493 in my theme.php is blank.

but from looking at it i'd say there's some kind of permission problem with your folders..

make sure the cache folder & templates_c & uploads folder are all chmod 777

Well an installation hicup seems to be at the root of my troubles.

Initialy when I created the MySQL account I forgot to grant 'CREATE' & 'ALTER' privileges, this was pointed out to me by the installer and I corrected the privileges and was able to continue and the installer reported success, however I guess something did not get created.

in 2.2.3a-Final the crashing line line is class/themes.php:499
return 'mod_'.$GLOBALS['xoopsModule']->getVar('dirname')......

So I rm'd mainfile and re-ran the installer and now she's good to go!

cheers all,
P

as i wrote in the other thread:

in case any one else has this problem, when you get that message, it means that the correct module hasn't been installed yet.

Since extended profiles are necessary (apparently), the usermanagement module must be installed. I tried to install it later, and still got some problems, I don't think my profile was created correctly. So. Reinstall XOOPS with usermanagement module.

It tries to go to the profile module when it shows a profile, if that module hasn't been installed, you get that error.

Maybe the XOOPS developers should make you install it when you install Xoops... Kind of like the system module. Because if it's not installed, apparently it causes problems.
