error in installation for elgg 1.6.1
|Reported by:||mtguyot||Owned by:|
I successfully implemented elgg 1.5 at onemilspeak.asitethatworks.com. This is becoming a test area before i take changes live to the real site: onemillionspeakers.com
I used the regular download from the download page. I first downloaded the zip file, uploaded the zip file to my server, unpacked using cpanel and received the following message: Not Found
The requested URL /action/systemsettings/install was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.0.63 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.63 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/18.104.22.16835 PHP/5.2.8 Server at onemillionspeakers.com Port 80
I then decided to download tar file (since I am on a linux host) and went through the same process and got the message above. The file structure created by unzipping the file does not include and "action" directory--though it does include an "actions" directory. At any rate I will need to find the 1.5 files and install those.
I am hosting on a cpanel (Linux) server, I have root access through whm. I was able to go through the install process through the step of setting up the database, initial parameters and had to upload the settings file manually.
To make another confirmation, I restarted the entire process with tar file I had uploaded. this time I set the htaccess file to 777 as well as the engine directory.
I labeled it priority "blocker" because installations of 1.6.1 are probably very troubled at this point.
At this point I will have to use the 1.5 version on the "real site"
