PHPNuke installation problem





mike_phi
Hi all, I have uploaded a phpnuke site to my account,

I have it in the following directory structure



domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/[html]
domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/[sql]
domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/[upgrads]



note : [] square brackets refers to standard phpnuke directory system

the database has been configured correctly and I can acces it without phpnuke giving any errors however when I attempt to launch my phpnuke site by invoking the following link in a web browser

http://www<my website subdomain>/html/index.php

I get a blank screen, I know the database is fine as I tested this by removing database credentials and trying the above link and phpnuke throws the relative datdabes errors, then I reconfigure the database with the correct credentials and phpnuke throws no error Very Happy but it just gives me a blank screen Crying or Very sad .

my question is the following, is the above installation directory structure correct

domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/[html]
.
.

as listed above.

My susspissions are that the frihosts apachi and php installation and con figuration with the docroot in apache, frihost is expecting my index page to be in the following directory

domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/index.php

as apposed to

domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/[html]/index.php

can anybody who has succesfully installed a phpnuke site here please correct me where I am wrong with refernce to the launch url I am using and also my current uploaded phpnuke site directory structor inorder for my phpnuke site to run happily here Very Happy nat frihost, basically can you list your directory structure as far as phpnuke installation is concerned as a example as i am not sure if I need to copy all the content of the [html] directory directly under my public_html directory.


please help

kind Regards Mic Very Happy

Please Delete Those Dirs, youre in HIGH RISK o being attacked.

domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/[sql]
domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/[upgrads]


Publish you site to the public_html root directory


it should be:

domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/index.php
domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/mainfile.php
domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/config.php
domains/<my website subdomain>/public_html/modules/

etc


in the CONFIG php file (config.php) turn Errors to TRUE, so it show if you have errors related to the code.

That blank page only shows one thing, you were not so smart installing your nuke! Confused Check these things:
that you uploaded the theme thats the default on the _nuke_config SQL table of you DB.
Check your that you have uploaded the main languges files.
and DOUBLE CHECK: your config.php file.

Thank you very much for the information, really appreciate the help.

I will fix my installlation taking all your input into account, jus one question how do I move the directories using Directadmin it will only move files and making adjustment mentioned above would mean I woudl have to copy many filsea seeing that directadmin dose not do directory copies. Is there anyother interface I could use to access my account remotely and make the necessary changes, whic will allow directory coping.

because at the momment I am stuck with two options

a) I create the drictories manually and copy all files, directory by directory

b) ftp the files up again ( Sad this takes time )

so any tip on how I can move these directories to comply with your information.

and again thank you very much for the info I really needed the help.

cheers Mic

try to move your files using your ftp client.

why does everyone think php nuke is so hard to install... when i first installed it i knew barely anything about php and i got it right the first time........ _ but then again everyone is different.
anticitizen1
yes is to easy to install but it depends of version used and the package used,
and the modules, if you have a bad coded module.

H there guys/girls thanx for all the feed back
I dont think that copying my directories using an ftp client will work as ftp dose not support directory copy.

it only supports the following operations


Code:
!               delete          literal         prompt          send
?               debug           ls              put             status
append          dir             mdelete         pwd             trace
ascii           disconnect      mdir            quit            type
bell            get             mget            quote           user
binary          glob            mkdir           recv            verbose
bye             hash            mls             remotehelp
cd              help            mput            rename
close           lcd             open            rmdir



unless someone knows of an ftp client that has copying directories built into it, I guess this would solve my problem Smile

you are right phpnuke is very simple to install, in the case of a basic extract the zip file and install but when you customize certain things and have various modules and blocks included it could turnout to be tricky, i tend to agree with

I dont know what you use but I use SmartFTP and filezilla.

http://filezilla.sourceforge.net

I never have problems copying directories as a whole

If you use Firefox, fireftp is really good!
