I am half way through the install page and I get this error at the save configuration:

********************************
Saving your system configuration
Could not open mainfile.php for reading
********************************

I have no idea how to fix this.Thanks.


I'm sure this is pretty obvious to some of the experts on here hense why I am posting, as I cant for the life of me figure out whats wrong? Any ideas would be apprecatied.

if your site is on a unix/linux server you should check for file permissions and owner...

Yes, I am running it on a raspberry pi running raspbian. Ive checked this, and all appears to be ok but if it is like you say, I dont know how to correct it.

We never tested it on RPi, therefore no guarantees that it will run there.

Few questions:

1) did you originally copy the mainfile.php from /extras

2) if not, did XOOPS create a new mainfile.php in the root directory?

3) If there is now a mainfile.php file, what is the content of it?

Just tested this, same error... fixed by copying mainfile.php from extras folder to the xoops install folder and applying read, write, execute permissions (chmod 777).

So is it working now?

I am very curious how will XOOPS work on Raspberry Pie....
