XOOPS for dummies at http://www.macambridge.com/dummies/ has very detailed installation instructions. When I set my site up online, I had to install XOOPS myself because I didn't have a C panel, but the Admin panel provided a way to create a database, and that's really all you need to do -- create one. XOOPS will do the rest by creating required tables in that database.

Unfortunately, when I tried to install the program on my home computer to set up my own server, all I get is a blank screen! So it's back to XOOPS for DUmmies for me, or find a more reliable product.

Good luck.

Are you sure?
Because ver 2.0.7 does not come with an installer folder. Your information sounds incorrect.

I followed every single instruction that was written out in this thread, but for some reason I keep getting those failing errors when it creates the mainfile.php. Not sure if this has something to do with it, but im using AppServ which installs MySQL, PHP, PHPMyAdmin and Apache. Would it be best if I install everything seperate?

Is there a database called XOOPS in mySQL? If not you need to create it so that XOOPS can then create the tables it needs within the database...AFAIK, XOOPS will not create a database for you, only add the tables it needs to an already existing database...
