I'm getting this again and again and again...where as I've made all the directories writable. This is on WAMP (Windows/Apache/MySQL/PHP).

File ../mainfile.php overwritten by ../mainfile.dist.php.
Failed writing constant C:/Program Files/Apache Group/Apache2/htdocs/afs.
Failed writing constant http://localhost/afs.
Failed writing constant mysql.

Which version of XOOPS are you installing?

And please see my sig for additional information that may help.

Any luck with this problem? I am having the exact same issue!!!

My Wamp installation looks fine, all the files are writable, yet the XOOPS config seems unable to write to the mainfile.

Any ideas??


Re: Installation Trouble!!!!

Yes, this will help you get a bit futher, but not complete the installation. I get to the "Confirm Database Settings" page and the NEXT>> page is a blank white screen. I'm assuming that this is a compatability issue with MySQL 5 because that seems to be what's indicated in other posts.

My installation is on Fedora 5 with PHP 5, MySQL 5, Apache 2 and XOOPS 2.0 and 2.2 which both have the same issue.

Am I correct in concluding that we'll have to wait until there is some compatibility work done with MySQL?
