    Installation issues

    I seem to be having a lot of issues installing this script.

    I can't seem to find installation documentation other than the standard Joomla 1.5 guide. Also I don't know whether or not to install the sample data.

    If you could point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.

    Hi

    I take it your tring to install the Latest Package 1.5.3?
    When you extract the package there is a PDF document which explains how to install
    The sample data does not need installing although it does give you a warning about it, ignore

    After step 8 i'm getting the following error:
    Notice: Undefined index: DBtype in /home/piccolos/public_html/alpha1/installation/installer/models/model.php on line 770

    Fatal error: Call to undefined method JException::getNullDate() in /home/piccolos/public_html/alpha1/installation/installer/helper.php on line 290

    everything seems normal up to there.

    Check your permissions on the configuration.php file.

    when you say the configuration file, where exactly is that?

    on the checklist it mentioned changing the configuration file to 777 permissions, so i turned configuration.php-dist into configuration.php and changed it's permissions. Is that right?

    The installer should create a configuration.php for you, if it does'nt create a blank one yourself in the root of your site, and change the persmission on that one. Then add the php script it gives you at the end of the install. Don't touch the configuration.php-dist.

    No that could be the cause of the issue. The installer will create the configuration php file during the installation. You just need to make usre the location the configuration.php will be created has write access during the install.

    Delete your configuration.php and reupload the configuration.php-dist and rerun the install.

    the first three are permissions on the imageshow module folder

    Try making sure the folder mod_jsn_imageshow_pro is writable.

    i've made all the mentioned files writable, to no avail.

    would it be a php.ini issue?

    You will need to change the error reporting values down on your webserver.

    From the backend Admin goto Help> System Info> PHP Information and look for the value error_reporting Try changing the value to 2047
