Hi everybody,

Does XOOPS support MySql 4.1.7? I have my own computer set up with WinXP Pro SP1, PHP 5.0.2, Apache 2.0.52, MySql 4.1.7 and phpMyAdmin 2.6.0-pl2, they are all working fine, then I install XOOPS 2.0.9 beta and after I clicked "Next" on the "confirm database settings" page, XOOPS generated a blank page.

Does anyone with the same problem and How to fix it?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for you guys' replies, my computer is running on Windows platform so I just edit php.ini to use the extension=php_mysqli.dll extension, with this extension enabled and modify the config file of phpmyadmin to use mysqli then phpmyadmin is working fine. However I don't know is there any config file need to be modified for XOOPS to use mysqli. I just keep getting blank page.

why do you need MySQLi support as PHP 4.3.9 has support for MySQL already.. 5 series needs the DLL loaded...

You don't need the mysqli extension for running xoops.

On my work Intranet site I use MySQL 4.0.2 and php 4.3.6, but on 2.0.7 (not gone to 2.0.73 yet and I don't use Betas on live sites. On my personnal site, well that's hosted for me so I expect they use the latest (or near to latest) versions of both and it's OK for me.

To resolve your blank page try turning your php Debug on (if you can access System, Admin - if not you have to do it from the database - do a search in XoopsFAQ to find out how). That will then tell you (error wise) why you are getting a blank page. Others may then be able to help.

Hi

I think that from some version (4.1.4g or something), MySQL uses encryptet password access. The problem is that XOOPS supports only MySQL connector and you'll need mysqli.
You have two choices
1. Put your mysql/users table into unhashed pasword form, so You could use MySQL extension. See the MySQL help how to do it.
2. What I would appreciate more too. To rebuild the base database class to support mysqli connector. I wouldn't be happy to send plaintext passwords espacially in these days of security freaks. I actually don't know why this base class was not rewritten yet to support (actually only wrap)PEAR:B class.

Hope this help.
