new user help with install


Recommended Posts

So I've started the install. I have the config file created. The database created with permisions applied to the DB. I go to the admin site to do the install and I get these messages.


Could not connect to the database - check the database connection details you entered and go back and correct them if necessary



Then I am unable to continue with step five to create a admin account. I get a 404 not found page.


Are there any good install directions floating around for a windows system?

I've removed your config.txt attachment as you don't want to be uploading your database password and cc encryption hash on the internet.


However the file you attached contained a bunch of HTML, it should just be like this:

$db_host = "localhost";
$db_username = "";
$db_password = "";
$db_name = "";
$cc_encryption_hash = ""; 
$templates_compiledir = "templates_c/";

...obviously with all the fields filled in.
