Install Issue
« on: October 25, 2006, 09:49:30 AM »
Hi all,

I am having some problems installing roundcube. I have searched the forums and found a few similar problems but nothing I have tried seems to work.

Initially I was getting the 500 server error so I removed the .htaccess from the main folder an I am now however getting a blank page. There are no error logs and I have turned the error reporting up to 8 but still nothing . Im guessing the ini has not been set to report enough errors, but as I am not running off my own server I can not change the php.ini :(

I've read this is normally a database problem, but cant seem to find what that problem is.

The server is running:
PHP v5.0.2
MySQL v5

The host itself is Lycos if that help at all.

Config files:
Code: [Select]
?php

I also tried to use 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost but to no avail.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Hiya,

Thanks for the reply. I've run the sql file and the database is setup and theres no logs or on screen errors so seem to be at a bit of a dead end :(

there are no logs in logs/ directory?
do you see anything in apache access/error logs?
does the login to database work if you try it from command line?

Hi again,

No theres no logs in the /logs file, is shared hosting, so cant get access to apache error logs same with console access, but the connection settings are correct :(

Did you make sure that the logs directory is writable?

hello,

it's just because you don't have the right to use certains options in the .htaccess.
if you put your webmail in /mydir/mail you can add this in your httpd.conf


AllowOverride All


if you want to verify go in your logs (perharps /var/log/apache/error.log et search for errors that say that such directive is not valid inthis context.)

good luck
