Postby jackbwa » 16. February 2010 10:34

I'm trying to install a script, when i load the install.php page at localhost with xampp, It show a blank page but when I upload the script to my server and run install.php page, It show the page correct with the forms to fill in.

Here is the install php file if you want to check this out:

i can't take a look at your install script, but maybe it's one of the many short_open_tags problems.

Search your whole script (not only your install.php file) and change

Code: Select all
<?
...

to
Code: Select all
<?php
...


and
Code: Select all
<?=


to
Code: Select all
<?php echo

Thanks Altrea very much, now i can proceed in the install process, but i have another issue - I have this message
Code: Select all
Warning: mysql_query() [function.mysql-query]: Access denied for user 'ODBC'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
, I created many databases and users and also made password to the root but without any success, is there any way to get red of this message?

You try to connect to a database and use "ODBC" as username and no password.

Do you have created a user "ODBC" in your DBMS?
Does this user have access to the database you wanna connect to?
Does this user really have no password?

or
is simply your connect-syntax wrong?

often Database user/password data must be edited in a config-file from your script. I don't know anything about your script.

thanks you Altrea again, but I'm already trying to install this scripts for two weeks, I tried with deffirent usernames and different databases, I tried with username root and created also username ODBC but I still get the above message, I don't know what is the reason but I installed this script in a server several times without any problem, It's maybe something so little that cause this problem but I can't figure this out, Will you Altrea accept that i send you this script and you try to install it in Xampp? maybe you can find what's wrong, and you will save me from another weeks of trying.
