View Full Version : Blank Screen during Installation
October 17th, 2005, 01:52 PM
I'm trying to setup a fresh installation of ReviewPost 3.1. I changed the settings in config-inc.php and set up the database. I upload all and run the install.php. Everything goes fine until I get to the setup for the administration page. I enter the info and click on the button and I get a blank page. No idea what's wrong as everything has been fine to there. Does this ring a bell as to what the problem may be?

Are you trying to integrate with vbulletin?
If so I would suspect you have entered the incorrect path to your vbulletin install

No, not integrating with anything. Just putting it up by itself for reviews to be done. Do not even have a bulletin board or forum installed on server. In fact, I don't even really want the photo capability right now. So it *should* be a real easy install, right?

Then something is not uploaded or configured right.
You would need to post a url or email one

I'm afraid I can't give you much information. The URL will just give you a blank page no matter whether you call index.php or any other file. The viewing of the directory tree is forbidden with an order, allow, deny order that I can't change so you can't see the directory tree (it's not my domain). There's nothing there to see. :(
I'm totally and completely lost trying to do this. I'm way over my head. I don't even know how to describe to you what's wrong. It just doesn't work.

One other thing I need to check...can you tell me what database table privileges this script requires to run? I currently have the DB set to allow everything but I want to restrict the privileges to only what's necessary to operate the script. Didn't see that answer anywhere.

You need create delete select update alter privelidge
If your not going to post a url or anything so I can see whats going on I dont know how to help here. As long as you enter the correct information on install everything works fine.
Make sure you have uploaded all the files from the package. Make sure to input the proper database information. Make sure to chmod the appropriate files and directories and then select internal install and input an admin username or password.
You can email a url if you want.

I decided to start over from scratch. I deleted everything from the server and database and started from the beginning again. This time, everything worked and it's up and running.
I do have one question still. If I want to change the $mysql_user and $mysql_password information due to changing the user/pwd in the database, is the config-inc.php file the only one that needs to be modified or does the information show up on another file(s) as well?
