    Re: Pre Configured Joomla Install for Edugeek Members?

    I've unzipped the Ravenswood to my c: drive - ran joomla.exe - got starting mysql,apache and joomla in a cmd shell box.

    Then got a Windows error popup saying
    "can't find w:\home\admin\WWW\redirect.html ... make sure path and filenames are correct and that all required libraries are available"

    Running on Win2000 just in case that's the problem.

    regards

    First thing first, thanks to those of you who have shown an intrest and are currently taking alook at this.

    SimpleSi

    First make sure no other apache / Mysql services are running on your machine. Then try right clicking on the joomla icon in the task bar and choosing joomla home.

    Have yet to get any feed back from people, so don't be shy, let me know what you think. Don't want to carry on if people think i'm on the wrong track.

    All ideas welcome.

    Just get a new blank webpage tab in Firefox

    http://localhost/joomla/

    I'm not conciously running anything - why does the error refer to a W: drive?
    Is this a drive letter on your system?

    regards

    No W: is not from my system

    w: should have been created by the ravenswood server. This holds the site / apache / myqsl data. - make sure it has been mapped

    Re: Pre Configured Joomla Install for Edugeek Members?

    Does anybody know where i can download

    MySQL 4.x
    PHP 4.x.x

    Joomla is driving me insane. I downloaded MySQL 5 and PHP 5.somthing and i can get to install1.php then install2.php is just a blank page with no errors. Looking around a few people have this and fix it by going to older versions of MySQL and PHP, but can i find them anywhere for download???

    I'm gonna go crazy!!!

    Have you thought about using an easy to install Apache/MySQL/PHP package such as WAMP?

    Cannot have Apache on this box has to be using IIS as other services are running on this box through IIS.

    Just a tip to help debug installations it's worth checking your php.ini and turning on error reporting as it tends to be turned off on win installs.
