I have been able to install 4.1 successfully in a sub-folder on my site, e.g. /home/mysite/public_html/classifieds
No issues with install or database.
I first deleted that install and database.
Now I am trying to install 4.2 on my same server, but in its own directory, e.g. /home/differentsite.net/
I cannot get past the install.php
I am getting a 500 error.
I have adjusted all the settings I should in config-inc.php and config-intc.php, even though those steps are not outlined in the installation documentation.
The installation documentation merely says to create a database for the classifieds and note the information.
Then make sure permissions are set for folders and files.
Then go to web and launch the install.php.
Nowhere does it say to FIRST, rename:
by taking off the .NEW
Nowhere in the installation documentation does it instruct you to FIRST edit those two files and re-upload them to your server and change permissions to 666 BEFORE running the install.php file.
I figured this out in the past, gleaning information from support issues in the appropriate forum section here.
Am I indeed following the proper procedure?
What is it that I am missing?
php Safe mode is off
There are only numerals and letters in my DB password.
Host is localhost
Path for classifieds installation is "." since it is being installed directly into my domain folder.
Since I am integrating user accounts with vBulletin 3.8.3, I have set that info accordingly.
Prefix is "pp_"
VB license info is there correctly.
When I go directly to my domain, I get the following error, presumably because I have not been able to run the install.
