After you create a blank conf.php file, you need to give it write access.
Set the attribute to 777.

If you create a conf.php file with your DB info, the installer will think you already installed Roster.

Does this mean that your SQL user is actually named 'nobody' - that your servers's adress is 'localhost' (note : this could be true) and that your NOT using a SQL user-password ?

What I mean, the roster install init , which uses the same install procedure as Joomla, e107, phpBB3, phpnuke, etc etc etc has to talk to an SQL server - and is has to select a database in it (an SQL server can manage many databases, each databases contains many tables, and each table contains many records.....).
You need the adress - something like an IP, or something like mysql-52 or even sql.host.com or .... whatever : the thing is, it should resolve to a server, often if not always, your hosts gives this address ou.
You need a SQL user (it should be there) - with it's own password.
This 'user' should eb able to CREATE, DROP, INSERT into a database, that you have to create first. Often, a database and user are already created for you.

This 'user' has to have a password.

Note that the first 'admin' user that maintains your database, or even your server, will be given t you by your host.

The only free of choice variable is the prefix, just leave it to roster_ and all will go well.

Please confirm this :
1) You can connect with PHPMyAdmin to your SQL server.
2 ) You server has at least on database in it - one that you should create, or it's already created for you.
3) A SQL user exists (these might be the same as the one you use with PHPMyAdmin) to acces this database.

installation problem conf.php

Postby zanix » Sun Jan 18, 2009 10:22 am

Ok, I did get it installed and working correctly
But I would like you to try again, but with some help this time

I already uploaded an empty conf.php file and set the permissions to 777
You should have no trouble if you follow this guide


In cpanel, go to "MySQL® Databases"
Here, you can choose to either make Roster have it's own database, or if you want to share your cms database

Note
Whenever you make a new database or user, cpanel will always pre-pend your username to the name you enter

So entering roster as the database name will make a database named username_roster




Make Roster it's own database (suggested)


In the database screen, under Current Databases, you can make a new database
For example enter the following
Code: Select all
roster


This will make a new database called
Code: Select all
username_roster




Share your CMSs database



If you share your CMSs database, you don't need to make a new database for Roster to use

Just remember the database name of your CMS



Access to your database


Under Current Users, you can make a new user, enter roster in the box and enter a password to use

This will make a user named username_roster


Under Add Users To Your Databases, select username_roster from the User: box and select the database (username_roster if you made Roster it's own db)
Under Privileges: make sure ALL is checked
Click Add User To Database


When you install Roster, you will use username_roster for the database user, and the password you chose when making a new user
Depending on what you chose above, you either use username_roster or your CMSs database name for the database name



If you are still having trouble, I will install it for you
