Also your config folder is in the HTML folder, I will add this part since some people got confused

lukasztarkowski,
Here is a free speech place but consider that you are advertizing another concurrent software on our forum.
Should we tolerate that, specially when PHP-Nuke works like a charm on Abyss Web Server and that your issue is surely related to some misconfiguration on your side?

Well I installed it into Abyss and I didn't get any errors at all. Abyss is the best and they are giving this software for FREE. Anyother product doesn;t offer anything like Abyss does. Does apache have a browser based administration? No. Does Xitami let you add other types of scripts as easy as Abyss does? No. I added ColdFusion, PHP, mySQL, Perl, ASP, and Python all in an hour.

 Posted: Wed Apr 02, 2003 3:59 am    Post subject: Deledar thank you for your contribution. Unlike some people I too installed most of the nukes on my own and never came across an error... I never wrote a guide on it because I was still looking for something better... Anyway, truth is Xitami is hard as hell, not a bit intuitive and I am surprised lukasztarkowski even got the server to work by itself not to mention the nuke to work with it... Anyway, Deledar, keep your head up, no matter how easy something is (add water) someone will just not understand it... Its almost guaranteed, like clock work. Good guide and thanks again :)_________________Victor B. Gonzalez http://aeonserv.com

 Quote: Click on Add... and put in Virtual Path: /(anything you want). Than in Real Path put: phpnuke Press OK and than press Restart at the top. Than exit your control panel. Ok now listan carefully, make sure that in your php.ini file register_globals is set to On. This is mostly why you get so many error.

Where do I find the php.ini file you're talking about? Your thread starts with configuring abyss server > server configuration > aliases, then you mention the php.ini file. Also, how would I set register_global to On?

Thanks for the walkthrough Deledar. I got everything else except for this part. :wink:

To eliminate Notices displaying (which is by the way what most PHP coders do since a notice is less important than a warning). To do so, open php.ini and locate the line starting by error_reporting=, then change it to:
 Code: error_reporting  = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE

 Posted: Sun Oct 19, 2003 9:43 pm    Post subject: I believe that is the version I am using as well. It is the newest version downloaded off of their website. Another interesting aspect. I have searched all over for the answer to this question. On a different message board I discovered that if you copy and paste the text of the NUKE.SQL into the area of phpmyadmin it would work. It didn't for me, but apparently it did for a lot of other people. It seems that not very many people have this problem, but those that do don't really know what to do about it. People have thought it was a corrupted NUKE.SQL file, but it was the one that came with the download of PHPNuke. I don't know, I'm not very well versed in this stuff, but I have tried looking everywhere to no avail. Nothing seems to work.

Do find/replace and Replace all the "--" with "#--" without the "". Then copy the entire text of the file and paste it into the "Run SQL query/queries on database phpnukedata" dialogue box. Then push "GO" It seems like it worked for me. Hope it works!

I did that, I was able to load everything in phpmyadmin, but in index.php and admin.php I get:

 Quote: ## Removed by the forum moderator

In my config.php I have:
