Re: How to login to new and fresh install?
I'm having the exact same problem as zokdok. In fact, his screen shot at http://www.macadelic.nl/xoops_screenshot.jpg
displays the exact problem I'm having: The Login and Main Menu links are inactive (text only - they can't be clicked) and there is no "form" to enter a username/password.
I've spent hours yesterday and today working through these forums but I couldn't get anywhere. I saw where one person indicated that setting a value for tmpdir in MySQL helped, but it didn't solve my problem. I'm using Windows 2000 Pro (work laptop) for my local instance so "folder permissions" aren't an issue.
I have done a fresh install of XOOPS 22.214.171.124 in two separate folders (C:\wamp\www\GoC and C:\wamp\www\kcoug.org), both with the same results as described above.
I saw other posts that indicated that this may be a problem with the Smarty template engine, but they haven't upgraded their software since version 2.6.6 [13-October-2004], so I'm not so sure that's the problem.
I used WAMP5 (v. 1.4.2) from http://www.wampserver.com/en/index.php
to install Apache, MySQL and PHP on my Windows 2000 Pro laptop, and once I updated php.ini to allow both extension=php_mysql.dll and extension=php_mysqli.dll all seems to work fine.
So here's my configuration:
- Windows 2000 Pro on a Toshiba Tecra laptop
- Fresh install of XOOPS 126.96.36.199 (two different folders, same problem in both)
- MySQL 4.1.7-nt-log - extension : mysqli
- Apache 1.3.33 (win32)
- PHP 5.0.2
And the problems I'm experiencing:
- The Login and Main Menu links are inactive (text only - they can't be clicked)
- There is no "form" to enter a username/password.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm completely stuck!
